Skipper says 'Sorry'....

Skipper says 'Sorry'....

Mansfield Town skipper Luke Foster was forced to apologize this week, after labelling the club 'a shambles' on his facebook page....

It was revelead that during the club's announcement that they would be letting eight players leave the club during the summer, Foster had his status on the social networking site, as 'this club is a shambles'.

Now, in a Gordon Brown election moment, he has been caught out, and he has been forced to issue a groveling apology.

A statement from Luke Foster on the official website reads:

'I wish to apologise to the manager, Board, my fellow colleagues and the Mansfield supporters for any offence that may have been caused from an expression placed on a social networking website.

'It was not meant to be offensive and has been observed in the wrong manner.

'I sincerely apologise for any offence caused and will choose my words carefully in future. I have accepted the club's disciplinary measures following my meeting with the Manager and Chairman.

'I hope to move on from this and concentrate on my footballing career.'

Of course, as in moments like this, you have to feel Foster is sorry only for being caught out, and not actually for his innitial feelings towards the clubs treatment of his fellow players.

We think Foster won't be long in leaving the club himself.

The amount of people that use facebook is immense & i can't see why Fossy has to put down several comments that arn't beneficial to our club ..... he is our captain , he should act that way !!!
