Liverpool fans receive apology for disgusting chant claims
You'd think that something of this sort would be beneath even the most desperate websites or social media accounts but so-called football website 'Caught Offside' last night Tweeted that LFC fans had been heard chanting despicable things about Emiliano Sala.
The claims came following another win for the Reds on Sunday, with many no doubt looking forward to going home and enjoying the rest of the bank holiday. So the claims came as a bit of a shock and were immediately rejected by all Reds who saw the Tweet.
Not surprisingly, that Tweet has since been removed from the @caughoffside account, after the club and Peter Moores in particular, got involved and attempted to interact with the Caught Offside Twitter admin.
Also not surprisingly, they have posted an apology in the last hour: "We have removed an article from yesterday afternoon and apologise for any offence caused. It reported on allegations that chanting from a section of Liverpool fans present at the Cardiff City game mocked the death of Emiliano Sala.
"Despite several accounts on Twitter that offensive songs could be heard, no audio and video footage to corroborate those initial allegations have surfaced and a great many contradictory accounts have been made. We apologise again for any offence caused."
Despite only apologising for 'any offence caused', it's about as much as we can expect from such a poorly run and clearly click-hungry bunch of football 'writers'.
We can almost guarantee that they won't be getting much, if any, interest or followers from Liverpool fans from here on in.
