Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has apologised for his outburst on Sunday during victory over Granada.
The Croatian branded the on-loan Manchester United midfielder a "son of a bitch" and taunted that Granada "were going down".
Last night, Rakitic said: "It was done in the heat of the moment.
"These are things that happen on the pitch and I want to apologise. I did not mean to offend anyone and if I did, I'm sorry. In Granada I have many acquaintances and I do not wish evil on anyone."
