Garry Cook's evil hacker has struck again, forcing Manchester City's website to reveal that the team's board has accepted the now-former CEO's resignation following that same dastardly hacker writing an email from Garry Cook's account mocking cancer sufferer Dr. Anthonia Onuoha's health - an email which was accidentally sent to Dr. Onuoha as well as intended recipient Brian Marwood.
When Dr. Onuoha, who had been acting as agent to her son Nedum during a tricky contract dispute, complained, Mr. Cook explained the situation by saying that he'd been on holiday at the time and could not possibly have sent the email, claiming that some sort of prankster was involved. Now said prankster must have really stepped up his game, because he's hacked City's website to say that there was no hacker at all and that Mr. Cook will be leaving the club:
Manchester City Football Club announce that the Board led review initiated on Monday of this week, as a response to allegations made to the football club, football authorities and a national newspaper by Dr Anthonia Onuoha, has been concluded.
As a result, the Club can confirm that there is foundation to Dr Onuoha’s allegations and the Chairman has written to apologise to Dr Onuoha for any distress caused. Following the findings of the review, Chief Executive Officer Garry Cook has offered his resignation, which has been accepted with regret by the Board.
What have we learned from this saga? Basically: Hackers are bad news.
