Tom Huddlestone hits out at talkSPORT for ‘lazy and misleading headline’ about him

Tom Huddlestone hits out at talkSPORT radio station for the ‘lazy and misleading headline’ they came for an article about him.

talkSPORT’s caption for their Twitter post was ‘Tom Huddlestone announces Man United exit without playing a senior match’, while the headline of their article, written by Callum Vurley, was ‘Forgotten Manchester United player announces exit without making a single appearance’.

He took issue with this and wrote: “Quite a lazy headline guys. For people who have had me on the station to explain and give insight in the role I have been doing, it’s quite a misleading title wouldn’t you say?”

It comes less than 24 hours after Huddlestone expressed thanks to Man Utd for having him at the club…

Writing on social media, Huddlestone, 37, announced his departure: “Today marks my final days at this incredible football club.

“Over the past two seasons, I have experienced remarkable growth and invaluable learning, both on and off the pitch.

“Every day, I have had the privilege of learning from amazing people, gaining insights into all aspects of player development and well-being.

“Entering an office environment for the first time was daunting, but from day one, I was made to feel welcome and at ease.

“I am and will remain forever grateful for the smooth transition.

“For any senior professionals considering a coaching career, I highly recommend taking on a ‘playing coach’ role for a season or two at the end of your playing career.

“These efforts are often taken for granted as a player, so witnessing and participating in this side of the game has been truly remarkable.

“I wish the club every success in the future. Special thanks to everyone in the academy, both players and staff, especially Trav, Demps, Nick and Macca, for affording me this incredible opportunity. Best of luck in the future.”

His tweet condemning talkSPORT has at the time of writing gone on to get over 8,000 likes, with talkSPORT subsequently deleting their tweet amid the backlash.

@bennymufc: Classic Talksport mate. Absolutely toxic that station

@ahkay2011: Tom the reds that know appreciate & respect u. When youth players like Kobbie establish themselves in the 1st team u will have played your part. The pass u played 4 the winner at Fleetwood was class & me & my son had a great night stood behind the goal with 100s of reds.
