In today’s The Guardian piece on Harry Redknapp being sacked by Tottenham, the following nugget was included;
Martínez was a candidate to succeed Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool, only for the Merseyside club to appoint Brendan Rodgers.
Now it’s possible David Hytner and the Guardian Sport editorial team may know more than we do, but as far as I know Roberto Martinez neither applied for the job nor was interviewed for the position.
So why why do they persist with such misinformation?
It seems the disease is viral in newsrooms around the world.
