Crawley Town Head Coach, Harry Kewell, has apologised 'for any misunderstanding' after approaching a 'disgruntled fan' immediately after his side's 4-0 defeat at Wycombe on Saturday.

The former Liverpool and Leeds player released a statement via the club's website following what he described as 'exaggerated comments on social media and news channels' about the incident.

"Whilst I did approach a disgruntled fan at full time, it was merely to hear his concerns. At no time did anyone need to hold me back.

"In hindsight I should have just gone straight to the changing rooms, given that emotions were running high. I apologise for any misunderstanding."

Kewell took over at Crawley in May - his first managerial position - but the Red Devils are currently struggling in League Two. They are 21st in the table and without a win in their last six league games.
