"I came here before. I love the city," Yeung added. "I know many people here. Karren Brady [managing director] is nice and David Gold [Chairman] is very kind. Steve Bruce is also a very good coach and has given me a lot of support. We talked for a very long time and he has so many ideas and we can do well. I wouldn't want to get involved in team affairs. I'm a businessman, I'm not qualified in football management. I love the team, they have a lot of experience and do very well. It is my dream to make Birmingham the best team in the world. I can try my best."
