Watford defender Miguel Britos has today apologised for his shocking tackle on Anthony Knockaert on Saturday.
Britos was sent off in the 25th minute of the 0-0 draw for a wild lunge on Knockaert and pundits including Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer criticised the Watford defender.
Speaking to the Watford website, Britos said: "I would like to publicly apologise for my red card on Saturday.
“It was not my intention to hurt the Brighton player, and I am happy he was okay and able to carry on playing the match.”
“My timing was wrong but there are no excuses and I was very sad when I was in the dressing room.
“I know I let the coach, my teammates, the fans and everyone down and for this I am very sorry.”
