He ain't Chelsea no more

The BBC has agreed to pay libel damages to Gianfranco Zola and Steve Clarke after Harry Harris, speaking on Five Live, "wrongly alleged they had attended an interview with the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich the previous week with a view to becoming the club's management team next season".

"The broadcast of this unfounded allegation caused Mr Zola and Mr Clarke acute distress and anxiety as it was understandably feared that it would damage their relationship with their employers and with the players and fans of West Ham United," said Zola and Clarke's brief James Quartermaine. Which seems to be legal-speak for "Stick your blur flag up your arse!"
