Tweet during funeral service: Lingard apologizes
The star of Manchester United has to declare himself a tweet, which was published during the funeral service of the Munich Aircraft Tragedy.
Jesse Lingard of Manchester United has apologized for a tweet that was used during the sixtieth anniversary ceremony. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Munich airplane crash.
The tweet referred to a computer game and was only published shortly after the minute of silence for the victims of the tragedy.
The 6th. In February 1958, the then Manchester United team, one of the most talented teams in football history, was torn apart by the death of eight players.
With the “Busby Babes” named after their team manager Sir Matt Busby, England had lost its “miracle team”.
Lingard blamed “one member of his media team” for the tweet, which has since been deleted.
He himself would not have noticed any of this at the time of publication, because he visited the funeral service in Manchester for this one.
“I don’t approve of the post or timing in any way,”Lingard said in his apology.
