"I can only apologize to those who took offense. There's no excuse. It's an old football expression and I understand I can't say things like that."
-- Glenn Hoddle, who previously lost his job as England coach because of comments about disabled people, apologizes for comments he made during Sky Sports' broadcast of the Premier League game between Fulham and Chelsea on Monday night. After Chelsea striker Fernando Torres lost control of the ball, Hoddle said: "When it's not going for you, it's not going for you. It's come off his chest, his knee and his toe. It's almost like the Chinese player Knee Shin Toe." (The Telegraph)
