Kevin Mirallas apologises for training-ground behaviour

Kevin Mirallas attempts to clarify why he was sent home from training, admitting that he was simply frustrated at being left out of the squad to face Watford.

Everton winger Kevin Mirallas has apologised for 'being unable to cope with his frustration' during a training session at the weekend after being axed from the squad to face Watford.

Reports emerged on Monday morning suggesting that the Belgium international, along with teammate Morgan Schneiderlin, had to be removed from training a day before Sunday's 3-2 win.

Schneiderlin has since rebuffed these claims, insisting that he was not sent home because of poor attitude, and Mirallas has now also spoken out via social media platform Instagram in an attempt to clarify the situation.

"I have to restore the truth after some articles in the medias [sic]," he posted. "I was not excluded of the squad due to a lack of commitment during training this was a manager decision and I was frustrated as I am fully committed in Everton since arriving in 2012 and I can't accept our actual ranking.

"I apologise to the president and owner, my teammates and the manager for not being able to cope at that moment with my frustration."

Mirallas has started just one Premier League game for Everton this season and featured for a combined 74 minutes overall.
