Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has issued an apology after refusing to shake Manchester United captain Patrice Evra's hand before the side's game on Saturday.
The Reds went on to lose 2-1 and Suarez has been roundly criticised for his actions since, with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson branding him 'a disgrace'.
But now Suarez has issued a statement of regret and insisted he wants to put the whole matter behind him.
He said: "I have spoken with the manager since the game at Old Trafford and I realise I got things wrong.
"I've not only let him down, but also the club and what it stands for and I'm sorry. I made a mistake and I regret what happened.
"I should have shaken Patrice Evra's hand before the game and I want to apologise for my actions.
"I would like to put this whole issue behind me and concentrate on playing football."
