Liverpool goalkeeper Charles Itandje has apologised for his behaviour during Wednesday's Hillsborough memorial service.
The reserve-team keeper has been suspended by Liverpool for 14 days while his conduct during the service at Anfield is investigated.
The 26-year-old appeared to sway and smirk during the event to mark the 20th anniversary of the deaths of 96 fans.
Reds boss Rafa Benitez ordered Itandje not to attend training on Friday as the club look into his behaviour before making a decision on his future.
Itandje has now issued an apology and revealed he hopes to speak with some of the families affected by the disaster to explain his behaviour.
"First of all, if my behaviour has caused offence to anyone then I can only apologise," Itandje told the Liverpool Echo.
"I am sorry. I am sorry. I am sorry. A thousand times, I am sorry.
"To the club, to the fans and especially to the families, I am deeply sorry.
"It was, of course, never my intention to offend or disrespect anyone.
"The events at Hillsborough were a tragedy and in no way did I mean to disrespect the memory of what happened 20 years ago. I would never do that.
"I would like to speak to the families in person to offer my apologies to them because, like I said, I never meant to hurt anyone."
