Banega apologises to Valencia coach Emery for handshake snub

Valencia midfielder Ever Banega has apologised after snubbing coach Unai Emery's hand during defeat to Real Mallorca.

Emery substituted Banega in the second-half and was left hanging by the midfielder when he sort to shake his hand.

"I'm very sorry. It was a heated moment, where we were losing, something I should not have done. I apologise to all my colleagues, coaches, the club, the fans. I apologise and will never do it again," said Banega after the game.

"I know I made a mistake and never want to commit something like that again."
