Antonio Cassano "apologizes" for hoping there are no queers on Italy team

Nope, no queers here.
Cassano is indeed probably sorry that he provoked protests. Otherwise, where's the apology? And just how was he "misinterpreted"? 

Italy striker Antonio Cassano has apologised after causing controversy by saying he hoped there were no homosexuals in the national team squad at Euro 2012.

In a statement released last night, Cassano said his comments had been misinterpreted and he did not want to cause offence.

"I sincerely regret that my statements have sparked controversy and protest from gay rights groups," said the statement on the official website of the Italian Football Federation.

"Homophobia is a sentiment that is not mine. I did not want to offend anyone and I can not question the sexual freedom of other people."

At a press conference yesterday, Cassano had responded to questions about reports in Italy which claimed there were two homosexual players in Cesare Prandelli's 23-man Euro 2012 group.

"The (national) coach had warned me that you would ask me this question," Cassano said. "If I say what I think...I hope there are none. But if there are queers here, that's their business."
