I want to make clear that I was supporting a friend and player I have admired since I was a child.
I apologise if I caused any offence with my comments as this was never my intention.
There has been a misunderstanding and I want to clarify that I was in no way endorsing the gesture made by Nicolas.
On purely sporting level, think West Brom would miss him if (when) he gets banned (& perhaps subsequently packs it in). Good show last night
