Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates utility player Edwin Gyimah has apologised to Bucs fans and players for the altercation he had with former coach Muhsin Ertugral in September.

Gyimah was involved in a heated exchange with Ertugral at Cape Town Airport, as Pirates were travelling back to Johannesburg after a game against Ajax Cape Town.

However, the matter may now be considered closed after the 25-year-old said sorry for his actions and vowed to avoid a repeat.

"I would like to apologise to the supporters. I acted badly and embarrassed the team," he told Soccer Laduma.

"I apologise to all my team-mates, my loved ones and everybody who supports and loves my game. From now on, I will make sure I do the right things at all times."
