The pair clashed in Arsenal's Carling Cup semifinal defeat to Tottenham and the big Togo favourite told the Sunday Times: "I wanted to apologise not just to Nicklas, but the people watching who are influenced by our behaviour.
"I have a passionate nature and sometimes the passion takes you the wrong way but I love the game. Four years ago I didn't care if I won or lost. Now I'm playing professional football, they pay me lots of money and I have to do what they want - scoring lots of goals and helping Arsenal win games and trophies. I'm fighting for that every single day."
