Johnny Haynes in a serious condition

last updated Tuesday 18th October 2005, 3:04 PM
Contrary to earlier reports, Fulham legend Johnny Haynes is in a serious condition and has not passed away.

The former England international, aged 71, is being treated at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, where a spokesman has confirmed the Craven Cottage idol is residing.

"He is one of our patients," said a spokesman for the hospital on Tuesday afternoon.

Fulham have retracted an earlier statement to clarify that they are awaiting confirmation on Haynes's condition following conflicting reports on the subject.

"The club is deeply regretful that rather than wait for official confirmation from the family of Johnny Haynes, it relied on reports from a succession of news wire, broadcast and former players of the club and reported that Johnny Haynes had passed away and wholeheartedly apologises for any distress the message has caused," said the statement.
