Tottenham legend Gary Lineker advises Saido Berahino

Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker advises Saido Berahino to apologise to West Brom for his outburst

Gary Lineker has advised West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino to apologise for his petulant tweet and continue to play for the Baggies.

The 22-year-old striker took to Twitter after West Brom reportedly rejected a third offer from Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day on Tuesday.

Berahino had made no secret of his desire to leave the Baggies over the past couple of weeks, and the England Under-21 international sent out a tweet after Tuesday’s development.

According to BBC Sport, West Brom have not fined the striker for his outburst on social media.

And Spurs legend Lineker advised Berahino to issue a quick apology to the Baggies and refocus his efforts on his playing career.

Berahino didn’t feature in West Brom’s 3-2 defeat by defending Premier League champions Chelsea and a 1-0 victory over Stoke City after he submitted a transfer request last month.
