The striker, signed from Caen in the summer, was stopped by local police in central Milan after borrowing the car from teammate Bakaye Traore.

"I would like to say sorry to all of the fans," the 17-year-old stated. "Also to Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani, boss Massimiliano Allegri and this magnificent club.

"I made a grave error, but I never said that I was Traore."
