Orlando City's Rafael Ramos Publicly Apologizes to Teammates, Fans


Portuguese U-20 international and Orlando City defender Rafael Ramos was sent off after a rash challenge in the 34th minute, which contributed greatly to the Lions' 3-0 loss tonight to the Columbus Crew. Ramos is evidently taking his role in the loss to heart and hopefully he can use this incident as a learning experience early in his pro career. His public apology via Instagram tonight features Orlando City's shield and the following text (sic): "I'm really sorry for what happened early today in the game! It was a really bad behaviour and I know that some of you must be hating me right now and I deserve it! I want to apologize my teammates, they just didn't deserve that for the hard work they did today and I'm feeling guilty for the bad result! Also I want to apologize to every member in this club, they didn't deserve this behavior from me! And I want to apologize too to every fan around this world of Orlando city that always have been supporting me since slthe first moment! I promess all of you that it wont happen again and I will learn a big lesson from this! "
