West Bromwich Albion have insisted that they were not having a dig at Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini when they tweeted about him during yesterday's Premier League match at The Hawthorns.
The Baggies' official Twitter account wrote: "Fellaini has now taken his tracksuit off, fortunately he has a Man Utd strip on underneath" just before he came on after half time and scored within three minutes to level the match at 1-1.
The club did not mean to insult Fellaini, claiming that they intended to joke about the possibility of the Belgian being naked - amid the cold outside temperature - under his tracksuit.
"We would like to clarify that our initial tweet about Marouane Fellaini was made as the player removed his tracksuit top," read a West Brom statement.
"That was in preparation for his introduction to the game during a period when night-time temperatures were dropping significantly.
"We are extremely disappointed that our tweet was taken out of context by mischief-makers."
Both sides scored another goal after Fellaini's rocket as the match finished 2-2 to round off the highest-scoring Premier League weekend of the season.
