Wilfried Zaha: Apologised to Leeds supporters

Zaha was taunted by visiting fans over his impending transfer to Manchester United and responded by raising his middle finger towards the travelling support.

But the remorseful player later wrote on Twitter: "I also wanted to apologise for the gesture I did towards the Leeds fans in yesterday's game. Very unprofessional from me."

Zaha, who played the full 90 minutes against the Elland Road side, sealed a switch to United in January but part of the deal to take him to Old Trafford was that he remain on-loan at Palace for the remainder of this season.

Manchester United and Leeds remain fierce rivals despite the Yorkshire club's relegation from the Premier League in 2004.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
