Former boss Dave Jones has issued an apology regarding comments made last year during an interview given to a News International journalist.
In it, he commented on the role played by Sir Jack Hayward in transfer dealings, and the relationship the pair shared.
'In an interview given by me to The Sunday Times, and published on 1 January 2006, I made certain comments concerning my time as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, and in particular my relationship with the then club chairman, Sir Jack Hayward.
'I accept that such comments were unwarranted and caused offence. That was never my intention and I apologise if any offence was caused.' Jones said
CEO Jez Moxey has said: 'Sir Jack has accepted the apology and as far as we are concerned the matter is now closed.'
In his defence, the subject of his time at Wolves was not an area DJ entered into willingly. He was asked several times to shed light on what goes on behind the doors of Molineux, and refused to be drawn on the matter.
Only the persistence of the journalist in question caused him to make comments that sailed perilously close to beaching the confidentiality clause which was part of his outgoing settlement from the club following his dismisal.
