FORMER Chelsea star Nathaniel Chalobah has issued an apology following an altercation with fans.
With the Baggies 1-0 down going into the break, Chalobah was embroiled in an exchange with fans as he headed into the tunnel.
The midfielder was then booed upon re-entering the pitch, with the final score ending 2-1 to Stoke to hand Carlos Corberan’s side their second defeat in four days.
However, Chalobah has now taken to Twitter to apologise for his actions.
He said: “You may have read that I got into an altercation with a fan on Tuesday night and for that I apologise to the fans and the club.
“I’m sure you’ll all be the first to tell me that you haven’t seen the best of what I can do on the pitch since I signed.”
He continued: “I’m very aware and frustrated myself and I let my emotions get the better of me.
“I’m working hard every day to make sure I can deliver my maximum on the pitch and I hope you’ll see that this season. Once again, sorry to you all, Nate.”
Chalobah has played 15 times since his transfer to the Hawthorns.
He earned his sole England cap in 2018.
