Twitter has been a revelation in the past few years and is used widely by professional footballers to interact with fans and give the public an insight into the life of one of their heroes. However, last night it was a platform for some of those Leicester players on the network to say sorry.
Apologies on behalf of the team that weren't good enough

It is easy to hide behind the screen when you put yourself in the public eye in such a way as Twitter but Neil Danns, Jeff Schlupp and Ritchie de Laet showed some class to apologise to the fans on the evening of the performance.
It is often a problem that players don't seem to care when they under-perform on the football pitch but Twitter has given these three an opportunity to put that opinion to bed. Thanks, I for one, appreciate it.
