Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds found himself having to apologize after scaring away the wit from large sections of the club’s supporters.
Recently, Reynolds, who along with fellow actor Rob McElhenney bought Wrexham back in 2020, posted a picture on Twitter.
On the picture was the text “Wrexham United”.
– This is correct. that happens. Really, Reynolds wrote vaguely.
Then Wrexham fans feared that Hollywood stars were about to announce the renaming of the Welsh club – that is, by adding “United”.
But it wasn’t a name change Reynolds wanted to share with fans. The 46-year-old wanted to start an advertisement for a new collaboration between Wrexham and United Airlines.
In a video that can make everyone smile, Reynolds and McElhenney lie flat and explain the misunderstanding.
– We stepped on the salad. It had to happen. We should have written Wrexham’ and ‘United’, says Reynolds, before McElhenney adds:
– We will not change the club’s name now or in the future – and we apologize for the confusion we have caused.
United Airlines will grace the front of Wrexham’s kits from next season.
In the previous season, the club secured promotion to League Two.
Wrexham confirmed on Friday that the club had secured hero goalkeeper Ben Foster on a new one-year contract.
