Stoke City loanee Joselu had to apologise to Deportivo La Coruña after finding himself in a little controversy last weekend.
After being booed by the club’s own fans, the player scored and celebrated with gestures telling them to shut up, something that was criticised by the supporters’ association.
Joselu also didn’t like being brought off, and did not react well in front of the manager when walking to the bench. Club captain Álex Bergantiños has spoken about it in a press conference today.
“We talked in the locker room and he apologised,” he said. “We will try to correct such attitudes. He is the first to apologise, acknowledges that he was wrong at the moment and these are things that have happened thousands of times in football, but are unpleasant and need to be corrected.” (via La Voz De Galicia).
Joselu has only five goals in 22 appearances for Deportivo La Coruña this season since moving from Stoke, and it hasn’t been a perfect loan move. The player came through the ranks at Celta Vigo, Depor’s great Galician rivals.
With a contract until 2019, Stoke City are still to decide what to do with him next season.
