Atletico Madrid’s Czech defender Tomáš Ujfaluši apologized on Monday for injuring Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and putting him out of action for some two weeks. The incident occurred in the overtime of Sunday’s game between the two Spanish top division clubs; as the Argentine forward advanced in full speed, Ujfaluši tackled him from the side and caught his ankle; he got a red card and was sent off the pitch. The Czech defender reportedly wished Messi a speedy recovery.
