James McClean Apologises To Stoke Supporters For Social Media Comments

: 11/10/2018 - 14:47

James McClean has apologised to the broader Stoke supporter base for the comments he made on social media last weekend.

The Republic of Ireland winger described a section of fans that had been abusing him as "uneducated cavemen" in an Instagram post.

He's been disciplined by the club.

McClean was responding to a small number of Stoke supporters whom he claims were abusing him for his religious beliefs and upbringing.

The 30-year old says he apologises to the "vast majority" of Stoke fans, who may disagree with his decision not to wear a poppy, but are decent and respectful.
