Crouch has cleared the Argentinian of any blame after watching a tape of the aerial clash which cost him three front teeth during Stoke's 2-1 victory over Newcastle in November.
He told The Sentinel: "As you can see from when I clobbered him in the face, that wasn't meant either.
"I felt so guilty after and went in to apologise because I know what it feels like.
"And I certainly don't attach any blame to Coloccini.
"My nose was a bit wonky at Liverpool and I had it put right after a knock – and my teeth weren't ideal until I had them knocked out and repaired – so I'm slowly improving as I get older!"
