Jewish board rejects Wigan owner Dave Whelan’s ‘half-hearted apology’
The Board of Deputies of British Jews has rejected Dave Whelan’s “half-hearted apology” for his remarks to the Guardian over Jewish people, labelling his latest comments as “outrageous and offensive.”
The Wigan Athletic owner and chairman, who appointed Malky Mackay as the club’s new manager on Wednesday, had been accused of antisemitism after he said “Jewish people chase money more than everybody else” and also suggested that the term “chink” is not offensive, before later apologising for his remarks.
However the London-based board, which acts as the main representative body of British Jews, accused Whelan of bringing both Wigan and the game into disrepute, and announced it would be taking up the issue with the FA.
