Blackpool midfielder Jacob Murphy has apologised for posting an image on social media which read: “We are going to lose… Again” before the Sky Bet Championship bottom club’s most recent match.

The 19-year-old, on loan from Norwich, uploaded the image of himself with team-mate Donervon Daniels before Sunday’s home game with Rotherham, which ended 1-1.

The Tangerines are bottom of the table with 14 points from 24 games, nine points from safety.

A statement on the club’s official website from Murphy read: “It was totally unprofessional of me and a foolish thing to do.

“I’d like to offer my sincerest apologies to the manager, my team-mates, the fans and everybody at Blackpool Football Club for the hurt and embarrassment that a recent photo message I sent has caused.

“I have loved my time at Blackpool so far, and I’ve been really grateful for the support I’ve received.”

“I know I have let the manager and fans down badly but I aim to repay them by working even harder and helping the team climb up the league table.

“I’d also like to make clear that Donervon Daniels had no part in this and I apologise for implicating him.”

Blackpool manager Lee Clark said: “I’m extremely disappointed because I expect nothing but total professionalism from my players.

“We will now investigate this matter internally before deciding upon an outcome.”
