Melo takes blame for Riera row

11 April 2012 18:14

Felipe Melo says he deeply regrets his bust-up with Galatasaray team-mate Albert Riera.

The pair clashed during a training session last week and both players have subsequently been fined for their involvement in the row.

Melo has accepted responsibility for the fracas and is now keen to put the whole affair behind him and help Galatasaray maintain their title charge.

"I've spent a horrible week with my family and cried for a whole day, but I have agreed to apologise to Riera and my team-mates," he told Fanatik.

"But my team-mates' attitude throughout all of this has made me very happy - it's shown that we are a family.

"Nobody was expecting it to happen. Everybody knows how much I regret it. It's the first and last time that this has happened in my career.

"I came here to write a story, and make a good contribution. The next goal is to become champions."

Galatasaray are five points clear at the top of the Super Lig ahead of their meeting with Besiktas this weekend.
