Rasmus Hojlund sends four-word apology message to Manchester United fans

The Reds were swept aside 3-0 by the Magpies at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Miguel Almiron and Lewis Hall were on target in the first half before Joe Willock wrapped up the victory after the break.

United threatened for the opening 15 minutes of the second half but were largely second-best as they suffered a second straight 3-0 home loss having been beaten by Manchester City at the weekend. The latest loss means it is eight defeats in all competitions for United this season.

And Hojlund, who only came on in the final quarter as a replacement for Anthony Martial, took to social media to offer his apology to the United supporters. Writing on Instagram, the Denmark international simply wrote: “Sorry for today everyone,” accompanied by a picture of him applauding the home supporters after the final whistle.
