The midfielder, who has joined New York City FC, said: "I was young and naive...and now have some regrets about what I did.

"I categorically didn't set out to insult anyone and have badly tried for 13 years at Chelsea to be a good man on and off the pitch and I want everyone to see that I have improved.

"The most important thing to say is, I did not set out to hurt anyone. I was misrepresented by the British newspapers at the time.

"I will go to the 911 memorial to pay my respects and to show New Yorkers who I am and to apologise."
