FA apologise after appearing to mock Antonio Conte on Twitter


The Football Association has issued an apology after its official FA Cup Twitter account posted an image originally by Chelsea forward Willian which appeared to mock Antonio Conte.

The image posted by the Brazilian showed three trophy emojis placed in such a way as to obscure Conte from a photograph of the whole team celebrating the FA Cup triumph over Manchester United at Wembley on May 19.

The tweet was posted by the FA Cup account at 12:22 on Tuesday and was visible for more than three hours before it was deleted.
