Man City's Adebayor: I immediately apologised to Van Persie
Adebayor was banned for three matches for raking his studs down the face of Van Persie.
He explained to CNN he regretted the incident: "Of course yes. I see Robin in the tunnel and I told him: 'I'm very sorry for what happened'. He's like: 'Why, why you do that?' and I told him: 'Robin, I don't know, that does happen, I'm sorry.' And at the time he told me, 'OK it's fine.'"
