Cole sorry for comments

Carlton Cole has apologised for any offence he may have caused over his Twitter remarks about Ghana supporters after being fined £20,000 by the Football Association.

Gabbidon could face charge

West Ham and England striker Cole was also warned as to his future conduct on Wednesday at a personal hearing after accepting a charge of improper conduct.

Cole, 27, revealed on Thursday morning via his Twitter account that he would request for his fine to be donated to a Ghanaian charity.

He wrote: "I will be asking to donate the money to a Ghanian (sic) charity of my choice, preferably to a children's charity. Hopefully the money will be going to a good cause.

"Sorry if i have offended anyone but there was no malice & harm meant. I never knew a light hearted joke would cause so much offence."

Cole made the remarks - which he later deleted - prior to last month's Wembley friendly between England and Ghana.

He tweeted: "Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was a trap! Hahahaha.

"The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St. George's flag!"

The Professional Footballers' Association responded to Cole's punishment by urging players to be more "vigilant" when using social media.
