The Sun (U.K.) corrects bizarre claim about soccer manager

The Sun (U.K.) corrects a rather bizarre claim about a soccer manager:

An article on January 30 incorrectly stated that Graham Westley, Manager of Preston North End FC, had sent a bizarre late night text telling players to prepare for a 9/11 style terror attack and encouraging reaction to it.

We accept that Mr Westley sent no such text to players or otherwise. We are happy to set the record straight and apologise to Mr Westley and Preston North End FC.
