Cavani apologises for Jamaica comment

Premiership

Cavani made the remark ahead of Saturday's Copa America meeting between his country and the Caribbean nation.

The Paris Saint-Germain man expressed remorse soon after on Twitter, saying: "First I want to apologise to Jamaica and its people.

"I wanted to make a comparison between similar styles and playing characteristics between Jamaican national team and those of African sides, but honestly I only put across half that thought and it came out sounding awful.

"In any case, I would like to publicly ask for forgiveness, and I hope my mistake will be taken with humour rather than offence."
