Manchester United defender Phil Jones has received an apology from Twitter after its official UK account mocked the England international. The verified @TwitterUK account took a swipe at the much-maligned Jones on Tuesday, posting: "Name a better footballer than Phil Jones". The incident came after the social media network had previously said "being the target of online abuse is not easy to deal with" on a dedicated help centre page about coping and reporting abuse.
Serbia-born man of the match Samir Nurkovic rattled the crossbar with a curling shot two minutes from time behind closed doors at Orlando Stadium due to the coronavirus pandemic. Relieved by the let-off, title outsiders Wits raced to the other end of the pitch and unmarked Cole Alexander volleyed a cross past Nigeria goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi to level. The match was the second in the Premiership since it restarted Tuesday after a 152-day suspension due to the COVID-19 disease.
"As a person and as an athlete, I can understand him. … Now he wants a new challenge, which in my opinion must be the Premier League."
