From ESPN - February 7, 2018

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has apologised after a tweet in relation to computer gaming was posted on his personal account moments after a silence to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Munich disaster.

The tweet, which Lingard blamed on "a member of my media account," appeared soon after the silence was held at an Old Trafford memorial event at 3:04 p.m. on Tuesday, the exact time of the plane crash in 1958.

In response to a question about when he and teammate Marcus Rashford would play computer game FIFA 18, it said: "Your (sic) not ready for me."

The tweet has been deleted and Lingard posted an apology that read: "A member of my media team inadvertently replied to a tweet this afternoon on my Twitter profile during the Munich memorial service at Old Trafford.
