One unimpressed Twitter follower queried Dan’s tweet, writing: “More license money wasted on paying his travel expenses to go to a ground & game fans can’t go to and him interview a few ex players on FF!

“Posting this is rubbing people’s faces in it & frankly I couldn’t care if you were going to Timbuktu and use your own money!”

Hitting back, the presenter replied: “It’s my job to cover the game and present Football Focus before hand.

“Very privileged to do it. That tweet wasn’t meant as a gloat at all.
