Everton striker Andy Johnson has accepted the apology of Jose Mourinho over accusations that he dived against Chelsea. The Blues boss – presumably informed by Mrs Mourinho that she would have the forthcoming fine/slander payout spent on her Christmas present – issued an apology over his comments.
Mourinho strained himself to state: "Everton, his manager and he deserve my apologies." Johnson has responded by accepting the apology. He said: "I’m pleased that Mr Mourinho has apologised for the comments he made. I have the utmost respect for both Chelsea Football Club and Mr Mourinho as a manager. Everton football club and myself can now concentrate on the games ahead." [Via Football365]
