However, as this happened the player took responsibility to his action and provided an update for all the fans awaiting a response:
“MEG decided to ban me from playing in the championship, and rightly so. And even though it hurts me a lot, I don't want to harm the mlq.
Everyone saw that this never happened again, I'm not that person anymore and I'm going to prove it to you 1/2“
“I don't know what my future will be, but I just want to apologize for hurting you.
I understand that these are consequences of my actions and do not come close to what I did.
Thankful for having changed and leaving a rotten environment in which I was also part 2/2“ he added.
