Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan has rubbished reports saying he is “on the verge of selling his ownership of the Wigan club”.
Lenagan has been involved with the Warriors since purchasing the club from Dave Whelan in 2007, and he says he has no plans to step away.
He said: “This report is false. I am surprised that the editor of League Express, who has my personal mobile number and has phoned me many times previously for comments, did not check with me the accuracy of it before publishing.”
Lenagan continued: “It is well known that Mike Danson and Darryl Eales are shareholders in Lenagan Investments, the company which controls ownership of Wigan.
“This is a very strong position for Wigan Rugby League Club Ltd and its supporters. There are no current plans for the Lenagan family to relinquish control of Lenagan Investments and, hence, Wigan Warriors.”
