Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller wrote Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico a public apology after his challenge in Wednesday’s 3-3 thriller in the Champions League

The Germany international was shown a straight red card in the 75th-minute after the studs on his boots scrapped Tagliafico’s head while he attempted to control a cross.

Fortunately, Tagliafico escaped the incident with just a mere cut with no lasting damage and went on to score a 95th-minute equaliser for Ajax.

Now Muller has apologised to Tagliafico for his actions today.

“I would like to apologise to Nico Tagliafico for yesterday’s incident,” Muller wrote on Twitter. “There was no intention [in the foul]. Get well.”
