Joe Hart has issued an apology for his social media post congratulating Tottenham for 'Job Done' after they were knocked out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zargeb on Thursday night.
Spurs came into the tie with a 2-0 lead from the first leg, but Mislav Orsic struck three times in the Croatian capital to seal a remarkable 3-2 aggregate win, and send Jose Mourinho's side crashing out of the competition.
Hart was on the bench for the embarrassing defeat, but posted a message on his Instagram page with a tick, claiming the job was done, which angered the club's fans. The 33-year-old has since deleted the post, and apologised to the club's faithful, and said: "Morning guys I feel like I need to come on and make an apology on behalf of my social media team."
"It's just been brought to my attention, I've literally just woken up. Someone thought that we had won 3-0 last night. As sloppy as that sounds, it's the truth. I posted "Job done". That's unacceptable and I'm sure it's annoyed a lot of people and I'm sorry it's come to that. It's obviously not come from me, I've got nothing but love for the club and support for the club and I'm just as down as the boys are.
Apologies again, unfortunately stuff like this happens and just know that it didn't come from any other place than a typo."
Although Hart or his team were quick to delete the post, fans on social media weren't buying his explanations.
