BBC Breakfast and Football Focus host Dan Walker, 43, informed fans he was on his way to Wembley Stadium to film a segment for today’s edition of Football Focus. The presenter simply wrote, “Off to Wembley” in view of his 667,000 followers in a tweet yesterday.
It wasn’t meant like that at all.
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.

Dan went on to apologise to the Twitter user, writing: “Sorry Richard.
“It wasn’t meant like that at all. Hope you enjoy the game tomorrow.”
