Liverpool PR chief quits after threats

AFP-Jiji

LONDON — Liverpool's director of communications left his post on Friday, a month after claims emerged that he threatened a blogger who had been writing about the club on Twitter.

Former journalist Jen Chang, who had only been in the post for six months, was accused by Liverpool supporter Sean Cummins of threatening him during a meeting between the two men.

Cummins, who set up a Twitter account under the fictional name Duncan Jenkins, said Chang had wrongly accused him of having a mole inside the club who was leaking information.

In October, Liverpool apologized to Cummins for Chang's "inappropriate treatment" during their meeting in Manchester.

On Friday, a Liverpool spokesman said: "Jen Chang has left Liverpool Football Club by mutual consent and has returned to the U.S. for family reasons. . ."
