Lawton was on the ball over Mourinho

Daily Mail football correspondent Matt Lawton has never speculated that former Chelsea Football Club manager Jose Mourinho was moving to Tottenham ‒ as Axegrinder reported last week.

Lawton did report that the Spurs chairman had approached Mourinho but also reported that Mourinho had ruled out going to an English club as his next move.

Axegrinder notes that Lawton was the first to track down Mourihno Mourinho and speak to him on the day news broke he was leaving Chelsea. So he was particularly on the ball with this story and it was wrong to suggest otherwise. Sorry for the balls-up.

Update: Further inaccuracies pointed out by eagle-eyed commenters have now been fixed.
