Ramos sorry for fight exit

15 April 2009 09:10
Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has issued an apology after leaving Sunday's win over Real Valladolid to attend a bullfight. The Spain international was suspended for the match, but left before the full-time whistle at the Santiago Bernabeu and was later photographed at the controversial event wearing his club suit. "At no time did I intend to cause any trouble and if I have done then I am sorry to the fans, my team-mates, the company and to the club who I owe," said a contrite Ramos. "It was not good. I take responsibility and if the club decides to sanction me then I will accept that. "I have already spoken with (sporting director) Pedja Mijatovic and I will accept a sanction. If someone has been offended then I am sorry. "I ask to be excused by the fans, the team and the club if I have upset anyone. "It has been taken a little out of context because I was at the stadium for ten minutes to support a friend."
