Former national midfielder, Jermaine ‘Teddy’ Johnson, says he is sorry for the unsavoury behaviour he displayed in Tivoli’s 1-1 draw with Boys’ Town in their Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) football game at Barbican Complex on Sunday.”Firstly, I want to apologise to the Jamaican fans, the Tivoli fans, the coaching staff and the players, I really apologise,” he told The Gleaner prior to Tivoli’s training on Tuesday.”I have to blame myself, as I have no one else to blame,” he continued. “The reaction from me was totally wrong and it shouldn’t happen from a player like me. But sometimes you lose focus and I am wrong for participating in that incident.”Johnson, explaining his version of the events which led to his red card, said it was a misunderstanding.”What happened with the ref was a misunderstanding. The ref thought it was him that I was talking (verbal abuse), but it was the goalkeeper ‘Duppy Man’ (Kirk Porter).”It has really been emotional what has taken place, but it’s now gone and done so I just need to focus and learn from it and be better.”I will just try to lead the group in a better way, a better manner and try to show the people that I am really sorry,” he said.
