Lukaku sorry for Anelka comments

Romelu Lukaku has apologised for any offence caused by his comments regarding Nicolas Anelka earlier this week.

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.
