Blackpool’s on loan forward Jacob Murphy has been forced to apologise after a personal snapchat image ahead of the club’s match against Rotherham United was leaked.

Murphy, on a temporary contract at Bloomfield Road from Norwich City posted a selfie with team mate Donervon Daniels in the background, which featured the caption “We are going to lose... Again” before Pool faced Steve Evans’ side yesterday.

The match finished 1-1 and Murphy played the full game.

A screenshot was taken of the image and it went viral on social media sites today embarrassing Murphy into an apology through the club’s website.

It read: “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. It was totally unprofessional of me and a foolish thing to do.

“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.”
