Everytime I walk out on the pitch, I try to give my 100% for the team. Unfortunately, sometimes the passion to win matches can lead to unwanted moments. Yesterday was one of them. Reflecting back I realise that my actions were not right. I apologise for letting down everyone(1/2) pic.twitter.com/dTSc1cncCY
