Ghaly apologises

Hossam GhalyFollowing Hossam Ghaly’s tantrum after being substituted on Thursday, he has now apologised for his childish actions.

Ghaly told the club’s official website: “I am just so angry with myself. I have always considered it an honour to wear the Tottenham shirt and I never intended to show any disrespect.

“I knew things weren’t happening for me out there, my play was terrible and I could hear the crowd jeering me. I was so upset at the fans’ reaction. I have enjoyed playing in front of the Club’s supporters all season and I felt I had given of my best all the time and played some decent football. It is always hard to accept being substituted after such a short period of time and I was upset and taken aback by the cheering. I am a player who plays with my heart.

“I know my reaction was totally wrong. I have apologised to the manager and I also want to apologise to the fans. I hope they don’t judge me on this incident alone. I have tried hard for the Club this season.”
