The Englishman, who saw his team knocked out of the European race from the sidelines, said:

"They posted 'Job Done'. It's unacceptable, I'm sure a lot of people are unhappy and I'm sorry for that. It has obviously not come from me, I've got nothing but love for the team and I'm just as down as the boys are, so apologies.”
"Unfortunately stuff like this happens, just know that it didn't come from any place other than a typo."
