"In the heat of the battle at Stamford Bridge I felt confident that I could score when we were awarded a penalty against Chelsea," he said. "In hindsight I made the wrong decision and I apologised to the manager immediately after the game, and we agreed it was a miscommunication.
"Any subsequent action taken against me is a confidential matter between me and the manager, and I am satisfied with the outcome and have no issues about it.
"As for this matter causing any unrest in the camp, these reports are utter rubbish and I am most disappointed that after such a fantastic win on Sunday (against Queens Park Rangers), this story is making the wrong kind of headlines."
