David Abraham has apologized to Freiburg coach Christian Streich after Eintracht Frankfurt's 1-0 loss to Freiburg on Sunday.
Abraham was sent off in injury time after he ran straight into Streich and pushed him to the ground to the ground in order to get to the ball which was out of play.
"I would like to formally apologize to Christian Streich. I wanted to get the ball back into the game as quickly as possible in injury time and shouldn't have hit him. I'm very happy that we spoke after the match and that everything is good between us," Abraham said in a statement posted on Eintracht Frankfurt's Twitter profile.
Eintracht Frankfurt board member Fredi Bobic said Abraham should have been able to control his emotions.
"David Abraham shouldn't do something like that. His emotions got the better of him and he felt like he was being provoked, but something like that shouldn't happen," Bobic said in an interview on Frankfurt's website.
