Mourinho To Be Named Chelsea Manager Monday; EPL Apologizes For Errant Story
Published June 3, 2013
EPL APOLOGY: REUTERS reported the Premier League apologized to Chelsea on Sunday after "inadvertently publishing a pre-prepared story" announcing Mourinho's return to the club. The story, later removed, appeared on the official Premier League website (www.premierleague.com) with Monday's date and the headline: "Portuguese coach is back at Stamford Bridge after signing a xx-year contract." An EPL spokesperson said that they had "spoken to Chelsea and apologised." The spokesperson said, "It was a publishing mistake. We have no prior knowledge of a pending appointment" (REUTERS, 6/2).
