Standard - No breach of FA rules

Posted on 18 February 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The Evening Standard today apologises for a suggestion in a story on Thursday that we broke FA rules over the payment of agents in the transfer of Goran Bunjevcevic.

Under the heading 'No FA breach over Bunjy,' the statement reads: "Tottenham did not breach Football Association rules over the payment of agents on the transfer of Goran Bunjevcevic.

"Although the FA's bung-buster Graham Bean is investigating the circumstances of the Yugoslav's arrival from Red Star Belgrade, his probe does not implicate any of the senior Spurs staff involved. The deal was negotiated by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and club secretary John Alexander."
