    Those headlines are in quotes, so they’re reporting it direct from the horses mouth, not creating their own headlines.

    They've created the headline from a "quote" which appears nowhere in the article so is it actually a quote? I don't think it actually is. On top of that they've done so in a way that anyone casually scanning the page could (a) Not realise it's just a quote and (b) Not know it's from an obviously biased source. Consider other headlines containing quotes on their homepage -

    'Dad had a soft heart. His suicide came out of the blue' - Adam recounts grief of father's death

    'Table tennis, but not as you know it' - welcome to the world of teqball

    'Rival fans told me to go and hang myself' - one footballer's story of dealing with depression


    Their usual method of reporting quotes in headlines is not to leave it on it's own without some sort of clue as to who said it or why, it just struck me as particularly poor given the sensitivity of the story.

    EA sports might have to recall a hell of a lot of FIFA19 games if this accusation is proved

    Think they'd just change the covers in production.
    It wouldn't be feasible most likely

    Does that mean we will be reverting back to Jordan Henderson again?

    Not much they can do I imagine. They'll have sold millions of copies worldwide most likely
