Barclays Expected To Renew EPL Title Sponsorship In The Coming Weeks
Published July 5, 2012
BUSINESS, NOT PERSONAL: GOLFCHANNEL.com's Jason Sobel noted Phil Mickelson "has a sponsorship deal with Barclays and has partnered with former CEO Bob Diamond in team events," but Mickelson yesterday maintained that Diamond's "recent resignation won't affect any sponsorship affiliation with the company." Mickelson said, "It won't affect my relationship with Barclays from a business side." He said that he felt Diamond "was being made a 'scapegoat' for the Libor scandal that surfaced four years ago." Mickelson "did not disclose whether he has been in touch with Diamond since his resignation" (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 7/4).
