Barcelona defender Jordi Alba apologises for Real Sociedad insult

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba has apologised for his one finger salute to Real Sociedad fans on Sunday.

Alba was caught by television cameras making a middle finger gesture during his side's win against Real Sociedad

"They caught me, no?" Alba said, admitting that he made the gesture after seeing the footage.

“If I offended anyone then I apologise," he added. "They were also saying all kind of things to me and I took it as part of the show.

“I didn't mean to annoy anyone. If the person that offended me knew me, I am sure they would come to dinner with me."
