Ipswich Town defender Toto Nsiala apologises after verbal confrontation with supporters
Ipswich Town defender Toto Nsiala has apologised to the club's supporters for last night's 'misunderstanding'.
Video footage emerged shortly after the Tractor Boys' 2-0 defeat at Charlton Athletic of Nsiala seemingly locked in a heated discussion with a section of Ipswich fans that had made the trip to south London.
He was eventually pulled away by goalkeeper Christian Walton, who in turn appeared to be pushed by a supporter that had made his way on to the pitch at The Valley.
Nsiala has now addressed the incident on the club's website, saying: "Following last night’s game, I would like to applaud and thank the supporters for travelling in their thousands and paying their hard earned cash, especially at this time of year.
"All of the lads and I fully appreciate the time and effort of the fans who support us up and down the country.
"Frustrations were high and I completely understand why, as that performance was not good enough.
"My intention was to acknowledge the supporters and tell them that we are doing all we can to put things right but unfortunately this did not come across how I intended.
"I apologise for the misunderstanding. I know the fans deserve more and I’ll be giving everything to deliver the performances and results that we can all be proud of."
Meanwhile, the loss at Charlton was watched by Marc Bircham, who is the current favourite with the bookmakers to be appointed Ipswich's next manager.
