Liverpool Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey Takes to Twitter to Apologize for Red Card But Blames Sir Alex Ferguson for Sending Off

Anfield youngster says he couldn’t pull out of Jonny Evans challenge.

John Shelvey decided to apologise to Liverpool fans for getting himself sent off against arch rivals Man United.

He also sent out a rather backhanded apology Sir Alex Ferguson’s way, blaming the Old Trafford manager for getting him sent-off.

Shelvey apparently then deleted the tweet below.

I have also apologised to Sir Alex, just where I come from people don’t grass people up to get someone sent off.
