Forlan insists he has total respect for Inter Milan fans

Diego Forlan insists he has total respect for Inter Milan fans.

The Uruguay striker has come under fire over reports of refusing to enter the field during their draw with Atalanta.

"You can say many things, but now it is important for the people to know the information given by the media was wrong," the Uruguayan told Inter Channel.

"I have respect for the fans, for Inter and for the shirt I wear, so I did not come here to do something wrong.

"It's true this is not a good moment, but I want to do well, step on to the field, score goals and help the team.

"If I have to apologise, because someone thought I did the wrong thing, then I am sorry, as I can make mistakes too. However, I want to tell the truth, that there are nasty people who know how to make the most of certain situations.

"We are all united and there is no problem. I'm aware that so far I haven't done what the fans expected, but I have too much respect for everyone to not give all I've got. I haven't started playing today, so my curriculum speaks for me and can reveal the type of person I am."
