Birmingham goalkeeper Richard Kingson has admitted he is still angry with David Sullivan over the stinging criticism aimed in his direction.
The Blues co-owner blamed some of Steve Bruce's signings last summer following the club's relegation to the Championship.
He singled out defender Franck Queudrue and also labelled Kingson 'a complete waste of space'.
Kingson believes Sullivan's comments were extremely harsh and has also revealed that people in his native Ghana are furious with the official.
"I have a very good reputation at home and all Ghanaians are very angry and annoyed," Kingson told the Daily Mirror.
"Some would come here, if they had the power, to see the man face-to-face. This insult has left me very angry and my treatment has not been very good from the club.
"It was a big thing to become the first black African goalkeeper to play in the Premier League.
"Everybody has followed me since the transfer and was shocked with Mr Sullivan and the words he used - the anger has still not gone away."
Sullivan has since apologised to Queudrue for his remarks but Kingson has yet to be contacted.
He explained: "He should say sorry to me. I am waiting for him to do that.
"If he has to blame anybody, he should blame those who played - not me or Franck Queudrue. He used our names and that was just not fair.
"If he wanted to say what he did - even though it was not justified - he should have said it to my face."
