Daley Blind has a nightmare when trying to post message to Man United fans on Instagram

The Dutch defender made a rookie error on a cut and paste job when posting on Instagram

The words ‘copy and paste’ should strike fear into footballers and their social media managers alike.

We thought it was a one-off with Victor Anichebe. His tweet following Sunderland’s loss to West Ham went viral for all the wrong reasons.

‘Can you tweet something like’ really took away from the inspirational message that followed.

But now the copy and paste curse has struck again.

‘Hi mate, what time do you want picking up from school?’

They do say all PR is good PR. Still, someone’s probably getting sacked in the morning, and we doubt it’ll be Daley.

Blind can always get a bit of advice from his old team-mate Wayne Rooney.

After all, his ‘Hi Rio, what time do you want picking up in the morning pal’ tweet is legendary.
