Cape Town - Bidvest Wits forward Gabadinho Mhango says he has apologised to AmaZulu midfielder Michael Morton for spitting at him in an incident he deeply regrets.
The Malawi international striker is currently awaiting the Premier Soccer League's verdict after he was captured on camera appearing to spit at AmaZulu midfielder Michael Morton in a league match on September 20, 2017 at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
"I was involved in an incident that should have not happened in the beautiful game of football. I offended Michael Morton and Amazulu FC," Mhango wrote in a self-issued
"I also disrespected my club, and above all, I disrespected the beautiful game of football. To all, I apologise unequivocally.
"The spitting incident should not have happened. Because of disciplinary action pending against me by both my club and the PSL, I was advised not to make any statements until such time as these processes were concluded.
"I have taken full responsibility for my actions in both disciplinary processes and now that they have been concluded, I can finally speak publicly about it.
"I have also met with Michael Morton, spoken to him about the incident and offered my heartfelt apologies to him and for provoking his reaction.
"I apologise to all that I have offended with my actions, and I pray and hope that you will all understand that whilst I was wrong, I am only human, and that you can all forgive me for my actions."
