Fernando says sorry

02 Nov 2006 - 12:21:18

Bordeaux midfielder Fernando Menegazzo has apologised for his headbutt on Liverpool's John Arne Riise during the French side's 3-0 defeat at Anfield.

The Brazilian was shown a straight red card for his assault on Riise midway through the second half of the Champions League clash and Fernando now accepts he was in the wrong.

He said: "What I did is very difficult to explain. Just before everything happened everyone could see there was a foul by (Momo) Sissoko on (Pierre) Ducasse.

"I put the ball out, but Liverpool looked to play on. That was unfair.

"It doesn't explain what I did afterwards and I am very disappointed that I could do that, because I didn't want to strike him.

"But for two or three seconds I was not myself anymore.

"I know I gave a burden to my team and I made a big mistake. This must help me in the future."
