MADRID, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Striker Luis Fabiano has apologised to Sevilla for telling reporters on Tuesday he wanted to leave the club.
'I am unhappy at present because I am not scoring goals and I blame this for my stupid outburst,' the Brazilian told the club's radio station.
'I ask everyone to forgive me - the president, the coach, my colleagues and above all the fans. I want to prove that I can triumph in Europe at a big club like Sevilla.'
Fabiano has found the net only once in the league this season and been restricted to just five starts.
The former Brazil international signed a five-year contract in July after moving from Porto, the club he joined from Sao Paulo in 2004.
He made his name in 2002 when he was joint top scorer in the Brazilian championship with 19 goals in 23 games, and topped that in 2003 with 29 in 34 games.
Sevilla, who play Cadiz in the King's Cup later on Wednesday, are seventh in the Primera Liga.
