Bastos Apologizes to Lazio

Michel Bastos has taken to his official Twitter account to apologize to Lazio a day after he was introduced at the Stadio Olimpico and was caught holding a “Lazio Merda” scarf.

“I never wanted to disrespect anyone. What happened yesterday was a misunderstanding. I apologise to the team and to the fans of Lazio. I was thrown a scarf, and after was the only time that I noticed that it had an insult. Thank you for all your messages. I’m upset with what happened.”
