Carvajal apologises for swearing at Barcelona fans
After he was pictured raising a middle finger to a section of Barcelona supporters in the Clasico, Dani Carvajal has issued an apology.
Real Madrid full-back Dani Carvajal has apologised for directing an offensive gesture towards Barcelona fans during Saturday's Clasico at Camp Nou.
Carvajal was caught on camera raising a middle finger to a section of home supporters as Madrid celebrated Sergio Ramos's 90th-minute equaliser.
The 24-year-old later conceded that he was wrong to have responded to taunts he says he heard coming from the stands.
Writing on his Twitter account, he said: "I would like to apologise for the gesture I made towards a section of the stands in response to insults. It's something that should not be done."
Ramos' goal cancelled out an earlier header from Luis Suarez to secure a 1-1 draw for Madrid, who remain six points clear of the reigning champions at the top of LaLiga.
Me gustaría pedir disculpas por el gesto a un sector de la grada respondiendo a lo insultos. Es algo que no se debería hacer.December 3, 2016
