Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud says he made a “precision” apology after taking a model back to the team hotel hours before a game.
The France international issued an apology after a picture of him walking around a hotel room in his underwear appeared in a national newspaper. The photo was taken by model Celia Kay, amid reports that married Giroud had an affair with her.
But Kay has issued repeated denials that the pair had sex in recent days. Giroud has now clarified his apology to say that he did not commit adultery.
The Gunners star wrote: “Ultimate precision with respect to my apologies…Yes I made a mistake but not I have not committed adultery! Things are clear…”
A couple of days earlier, he said: “I apologise to my wife, family and friends and my manager, team-mates and Arsenal fans.
“I now have to fight for my family and for my club and obtain their forgiveness. Nothing else matters at the moment.”
