RASMUS HOJLUND has offered an apology to Manchester United fans following the club’s Carabao Cup exit.
The defending champions were embarrassed at home for the second time in a week as they were dumped out in a 3-0 loss to Newcastle.
And £72million man Hojlund felt it necessary to apologise to Man Utd fans after yet another disappointing performance from the players.
He took to Instagram to muster a four word statement, writing: “Sorry for today everyone…”
The Danish international came on in the 64th minute of the Old Trafford clash, but was unable to help his side overturn their three goal deficit.
It’s the second 3-0 defeat that Man Utd have succumb to in the space of four days after they were taught a lesson by noisy neighbours Man City on Sunday.

Ten Hag’s side will travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday for the early kick off as they look to change their fortunes.
But after the historic club’s worst start in 61 years the Dutch boss could be in trouble if things don’t change soon.
He is now second favourite to face the sack next in the Premier League according to the bookies with only 20th placed Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom above him.
And even club legend Gary Neville has hinted that a ten Hag exit could be nearing in a post-match rant on X (formerly Twitter).
