Azhar Gets The Boot From The Apprentice
Contestant insists Sir Alan was wrong to fire him after sales task...
The Apprentice yesterday.
As he left the boardroom and hopped into the black cab, the Manchester entrepreneur insisted he was 'robbed', claiming Sir Alan Sugar had made the wrong decision.
Azhar's exit came after Team Phoenix, led by Jade Nash, failed to "smell what sells" at Essex markets and shopping centres.
Each team was tasked with finding wholesale products that would grab the public's attention, in order to reinvest in the best-selling items and turn the biggest profit.
Azhar was concerned about project manager Jade's scattergun approach to buying stock and repeatedly stated that a clear strategy was required.
His persistence saw him brought back into the boardroom, along with Tom Gearing, where Jade accused him of wasting time and "not being constructive."
Despite the fact that Jade had failed to reinvest in the fastest-selling product (a children's toy with a sizeable mark-up), Lord Sugar praised the PM for her enthusiasm.
Azhar, on the other hand, was criticised for "standing around, moaning all the time" without offering a solution, and was promptly shown the door.
As he left the process, Azhar said: "I do feel robbed, I was wrong to be fired.
"I think there are people in this process who are playing a game, playing a strategic game, and I think they wanted me out of the process because they saw me as a threat, they saw me as one of the stronger candidates and obviously they've got their way."
Last week saw Katie Wright leave the competition after a street food task.
