Farce has descended on the Scottish/English press as it has emerged that Sheffield United’s reported interest in Glen Kamara was in fact a spelling error, and instead it’s Olympiakos’ midfielder Mady Camara on the agenda for Chris Wilder.
The £20M rated Senegalese engine room man’s name is close enough we suppose for lazy journalists to make such a fundamental mistake, but it’s still amateur.
