Van Bommel apologises for gestures to Real fans

MADRID, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich midfielder Mark van Bommel apologised for making rude gestures towards the crowd after scoring a late goal in his side's 3-2 Champions League first knockout round first leg defeat at Real Madrid on Tuesday.

But the former Barcelona player said his reaction was sparked by previous run-ins with some Real Madrid players.

'I want to apologise to the Real supporters, I have got nothing against them, only against some of the players,' he told reporters.

The 29-year-old left Barca for Bayern at the end of last season after helping the Catalans win both the Spanish title and the Champions League.

Real Madrid captain Raul and Ruud van Nistelrooy said Van Bommel had apologised to them for the gestures but Iker Casillas said the Dutchman should have shown more control on the pitch.

'You can do whatever you want in the dressing room, but you have to know how to behave on the pitch,' the Real keeper said.
