Van Awijk said he did not mean any offense.

Milan van Awijk caused controversy with a controversial celebration during Coventry's game against Millwall but says no offense was intended.

U.S. Men's National Soccer Team star Haji Wright scored two goals in just three second-half minutes to help Coventry beat Millwall 2-1, with Millwall's Romain Esse opening the scoring . . After one of Coventry's goals, a photo of teammate Van Awijk celebrating was posted on the club's Instagram account, but the photo appeared to have been quickly deleted by the club, according to The Forty Four. The Dutchman claimed it was a mistake on his part and he meant no offense.

In a since-deleted Instagram post and comment, Van Awijk wrote: "I got the two celebrations mixed up ... please don't take this as offense!"

When a new photo was posted on Instagram, he commented: "Yeah, that's a better photo."

Mark Robins' side moved up to sixth in the Championship and into the final playoff spot after beating Millwall . US Men's National Soccer Team star Wright has scored his tenth and eleventh goals of the season and if he can continue this scoring performance, the Sky Blues are expected to advance.

Coventry have a series of tense games over the next two weeks, including an away game at Plymouth FC on Wednesday, followed by an away game at Stoke City on Saturday.
