Kevin Davies Apologises To Fans On Twitter After FA Cup Misery

An unpredictable weekend of FA Cup football has seen Twitter set alight by players and fans alike wanting to have their say. The microblogging site has become a common place for celebrities, especially footballs to come and either rant, praise or apologise. Kevin Davies is one of those after his team’s embarrassment at Wembley yesterday.

The Bolton Wanderers captain led his side out for a semi final match against Stoke, with resulted in Bolton being thrashed 5-0. Davies was clearly upset and disgusted with his team’s performance, issuing an apology to all of the fans who spent their hard earned cash to travel and watch the game. Lake Star Media has reported Davies as saying “I am so sorry to all of you who came to support us and paid a lot of money. I am deeply upset and lost for words. Deserve the criticism.”

The 34 year old and his team were the favourites to win the game, so it was quite a surprise to see Stoke win by such a large margin. Several thousands of Bolton fans were reported to have travelled down to London, with many of these rushing to the exits by half time, due to the score being 3-0. This is not the first time apologies have been issued on Twitter by footballers recently.

The day before Rio Ferdinand, the Manchester United defender had to say sorry to fans, due to the fierce nature in which their semi final against bitter rivals Manchester City ended. Ferdinand was upset because opposition striker Mario Balotelli was alleged to have taunted United supporters after their team lost 1-0. Will we be seeing another Twitter apology from a player after the FA Cup final between City and Stoke in May?
