"F*ck Cov": Footballer delivers tragic drunken rant on Snapchat

P45 in the post

A footballer who filmed a foul-mouthed two-minute rant and posted it on his Snapchat story has apologised to fans, saying that his actions were "disgraceful".

Coventry City bit-part player Jak Hickman, who rarely even gets a game for the Sky Blues, posted the embarrassing drunken rant whilst out boozing with friends in Ibiza's prestigious O Beach Club, which is part-owned by Gary Lineker's brother, Wayne Lineker.

The 20-year-old - who was limited to just two appearances for Coventry in the EFL Trophy last season - bragged about being able to 'pull loads of girls', like you might do if you were thirteen years old. He also said that his "pockets were deep" because he had so much money, which in itself is hilariously cringeworthy.

During the two-minute snap, Hickman is also heard saying "Fuck Cov" and that he was "leaving" [the club]. Considering he spent part of last season on loan in the seventh tier of English football, it's difficult to see where he would be going.

Understandably, the video has caused uproar among Coventry fans on social media, with many just taking pity on the somewhat unheard of young pro. One supporter said:

"The most tragic thing about that Jak Hickman clip is that no one even knows who he is. The pinnacle of his football career will be getting wrecked and doing a snapchat video. #pusb"

While another has changed his official Wikipedia page, and it's pretty funny:

Today, Hickman has issued a statement on his personal Twitter account, in it apologising to fans for his stupidity. It reads:

“Just want to speak on the video what people seen yesterday.

“It’s disgraceful on my behalf saying them words and I’m so disappointed in myself, I’m not going to try and condone what I said because it’s just not on.

“I have nothing but love for Coventry City football club. I know a lot of people have had their opinion what they saw and I cannot blame them.

“I’m on holiday with friends and I had a drink but that is not an excuse for what I said.

“All I can say is sorry and try to prove myself to you on the pitch where it matters, if I get the chance.

“I and anyone else I mentioned are not leaving their club just to clear that up, it was drunken words which were not acceptable and I didn’t want anything I said to be seen.

“People who know me personally will know what I’m like and will laugh but if you don’t I cannot blame you for thinking I’m an idiot.

“But it’s happened now, all I can do personally now is try and put it right.

“Secondly, I just want to say as fans of the club you lot shouldn’t have to see someone giving it the big one like that, thinking I’m something special when I’m far from it.

“And I’m very different to that if you know me personally. I’m just upset with myself right now.”

Coventry City have confirmed that they are aware of the video and will be dealing with the incident internally.
