Liverpool apologise to Fulham over Dempsey row

Liverpool have apologised to Fulham for tapping up Clint Dempsey before his move to Tottenham.

Liverpool have apologised to Fulham for tapping up Clint Dempsey before his move to Tottenham.

The Daily Mail says a statement from Fulham, expected today, will confirm that in return the club have dropped their complaint to the Premier League over the affair.

The peace deal came only after a personal visit by Liverpool co-owner Tom Werner to Craven Cottage chairman Mohamed Al Fayed was followed up by a letter from Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre admitting that the club’s behaviour ‘was wrong’ and ‘simply never should have occurred’.

The letter, sent last Friday, confirms that a meeting took place between Werner and Fayed, during which the former apologised for Liverpool’s actions regarding Dempsey last summer.
