Funes Mori sorry for Origi challenge


Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori has issued a public apology for his challenge on Divock Origi in Wednesday's Merseyside derby.

The centre-back was shown a straight red card for the challenge on the Liverpool player, which led to the striker being removed from the field with a serious ankle injury.

He was heavily criticised for grabbing the club badge on his shirt as he made his way from the pitch and he has issued a public apology to both Origi and his Everton team-mates.

“I very much regret what happened yesterday,” Funes Mori said in a statement posted on Twitter.

"It was never my intention to harm a rival not my colleagues leaving the field.

"And regarding Divock Origi, I fervently hope it’s nothing serious and know that it was never my intention to hurt. I ask my apologies for what happened."
