The 25-year-old Manchester City star, who launched into a tirade of abuse at the journalist when he was leaving the mixed zone after the 2-0 Euro 2012 quarter-final defeat, said on Twitter that his argument was with certain journalists and he would explain more when he felt it was appropriate.

"There are too many different accounts going around at the moment. I would just like to let the supporters and especially the children know that I sincerely regret that my words may have shocked them.

"I love the EDF (French team), football and I have a deep respect for the public.

"As for the rest, it is a personal affair between me and several journalists. I will explain when the time is deemed appropriate."

Nasri, who plays with Manchester City in the English Premier League, is expected to face disciplinary charges over the outburst next week.
