05 January 2012, 12:10
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez on Thursday issued an apology after
receiving an eight-match ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra, but
stopped short of saying sorry to the Manchester United defender.
Liverpool said on Tuesday they had accepted Suarez's ban for calling
Evra a "negro" but the player issued a statement the same day
maintaining his innocence.
But in another statement issued Thursday, Suarez said: "I never, ever
used this word in a derogatory way and if it offends anyone then I want
to apologise for that.
