SC Bastia striker Brandão apologised last night via social network site Facebook for his headbutting of Thiago Motta.
The Brazilian come Frenchman posted the following:
“I would ask to apologise to Thiago Motta for my actions. I’m sorry and I’m hoping for the understanding of my friends and fans.”
The player then inexplicably deleted the post. It is widely believed that Brandão will be sacked by SC Bastia for gross misconduct just two weeks after signing for the club.
