Shelvey apologises to Newcastle fans after Cup loss

Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has apologised to the club's supporters after the loss to Leicester City in the Carabao Cup.

Toon were eliminated from the competition on Wednesday after Kasper Schmeichel denied two spot-kicks, one of which from Shelvey, in a penalty shootout after the game finished 1-1 in normal time.

After the game Shelvey told the Evening Chronicle: "I want to apologise to the fans for missing the penalty. It was a shocking penalty on my behalf. I won't be taking them any more.

"I just wanted to come out and apologise to the fans.

"I thought we deserved more from the game and we worked our socks off against a very good Leicester side."
