Manchester United Cavani at peace after accepting FA sanction

Manchester: Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has accepted the three-game ban handed for using a racial term and said that while he did not agree with the governing body's assessment of his comment, his heart was at peace.

After being suspended for three games by the Football Association (FA) over an comment on social media, Manchester United's Edinson Cavani apologised if he offended someone and said that his heart is at peace. Apart from the suspension, the player has also been fined £100,000 over the comment he posted in November.

After the suspension, Cavani took to Instagram and wrote: "Hello everyone, I do not want to extend much in this uncomfortable moment for me. I want to share with you that I accept the disciplinary sanction knowing that I am foreign to English language customs, but I do not share the point of view.I apologise if I offended someone with an expression of affection towards a friend, nothing further in my intention. Those who know me know that my effort always seeks the simplest joy and friendship! I appreciate the countless expressions of support and affection. My heart is at peace because I know that I always expressed myself with affection according to my culture and way of life. I send you a sincere hug."
