Cape Town - Winger Khethokwakhe Masuku has apologised following his unsporting behaviour in the Nedbank Cup Last 16 match against Santos last Friday.

Pirates won 2-0.

In a letter addressed to the fans and sent to Orlando Pirates website, Masuku expressed his regret following the incident he was involved in.

Excerpts of his letter read:

“I wish to apologise unreservedly to the chairperson of the club Dr Irvin Khoza, the Management, the Technical team, my team-mates, the League, the club fans and the sporting fraternity at large, for acting in the manner I did in the match against Santos, while sitting on the bench.

"After being substituted, I was overcome by emotions thus I acted in the manner I did, which I understand is by no means justifiable.

"I have been in football for a few good years, and I could have handled my personal frustrations a lot better.

I know that wearing headsets/headphones while on the bench is unacceptable and above all disrespectful and it is for this reason that I have written this apology letter.

Once again I want to express my deepest regret at what I did."

Thank you.

Kethokwakhe Masuku.
