Wigan Athletic owner Dave Whelan has been accused of anti-Semitism after he told the Guardian
that he thinks that “Jewish people chase money more than everybody else.”
Ironically, according to
the Guardian, the comments came as part of Whelan's attempt to defend
the appointment of Malky Mackay as Wigan’s manager, despite the fact
that Mackay himself was being investigated by the UK's Football
Association for alleged racism and anti-Semitism.
