Everton's number one Tim Howard has apologised for his language after the final of the KENCO COFFEE Cup. But he makes sure that he still gets his point over. Good on you Timbo
Tim said: "I would like to apologise for my language. I am the father of young children and I certainly do not believe profanity is appropriate in public comments. I was caught up in the heat of the moment.
"In any important international match with post-game ceremonies you would hope the tournament organisers would make sure the primary language of each participating team is used so the participants can understand what is being said.
"To fail to do this is, in my opinion, disrespectful to the players. When this occurs on your home soil, it is particularly insulting.
"We, as American players, were asked to participate in a post-game ceremony at a match in Los Angeles and we are standing there trying to show good sportsmanship and yet the ceremony is going on and we are just looking at one another struggling to understand a word.
"It was, to be honest, humiliating, and I firmly believe the tournament organisers should not have put us in that position."
