Liverpool striker Suarez makes apology, though Evra not mentioned

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has issued an apology over his race ban.

Suarez has issued a public apology following his eight-match ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra - but has not said sorry to the Manchester United defender.

Quoted in several national newspapers, Suarez said: "I admitted to the commission that I said a word in Spanish once and only once. I told the panel members that I will not use it again on a football pitch in England.

"I never, ever used this word in a derogatory way and if it offends anyone then I want to apologise for that."
