Maybe not a marquee signing but still a very good and very consistent player, Clint ‘Deuce’ Dempsey found himself in the middle of a bit of a furore today after the Fenway Sports Group, who own Liverpool, stated on their website that the American attacker had joined Reds (see above).
This was apparently news to Dempsey’s current club, Fulham, who swiftly declared that their star player hadn’t moved to Andfield after all. Cue the original post on the Fenway Sports Group getting a rather quick edit, which erased any mention of Dempsey. See here for the new, Clint-free post.
The website in question is actually hosted by sports network company NESN.com. However, ’tis all a bit of an embarrassment. Although to be honest, the move will probably still take place.
