Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Chelsea Football Club complained, through Carter-Ruck solicitors, that the newspaper had inaccurately claimed that Chelsea had offered the job of manager to Marco Van Basten.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which had carried the clubs denial in the next days edition, as part of another story, published the following correction:

On September 26 following comments by former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello, we reported Marco Van Basten had been offered the Chelsea managers job. We now understand and accept this was not the case and are happy to make this clear.

Report: 76
