Louis Tomlinson is heartbroken after his attempt to take over his beloved Doncaster Rovers soccer club fell through, allegedly because of issues with the crowd-funding initiative behind it.

The One Direction singer and his business partner John Ryan had been set to buy the team, but apparently failed to secure sufficient investments funds, although Ryan insists that the problem was a lack of football league approval, not money.

Tomlinson took to Twitter on Thursday to express his disappointment (see below).
