Man City red-faced as youth team player tweets support for rival Man U!

April 6, 2012 - London

Manchester City was left red faced due to the action of one of its youth team players, Sam Jones, who expressed his joy when old foes Manchester United beat Blackburn Rovers 2-0 at Ewood park on Monday.

United's win increased the difference between both the Manchester club to five points, and made it more difficult for City to clinch their first league title since 1968.

"Game over! Ashley Young you king," The Daily Star quoted Jones's tweet as saying.

Jones, however, apologized to Manchester City fans for his action later on.

"To all City fans I am really sorry for causing offence with my Tweets. I realize that I shouldn't have said those things," he said.
