Chris Samba: Drew criticism from fans after a torrid first-half performance at C

The 29-year-old was at fault for Fulham's opening two goals in what ended up as a 3-2 defeat at Craven Cottage.

Samba apologised to supporters on the social networking site after the game but was soon drawn into a row over his hefty wages - reported to be £100,000 a week.

Returning to Twitter on Tuesday, he wrote: "Good morning to all, hope u (sic) all ok and start today with a fresh mindset move on from what happen yesterday only way to overcome the past.

"Just to say I am human and like any others words can be upsetting, the money comments and performance tweets I can deal with to a degree."

Samba also hit out at the racism he suffered on Monday night after a user called him a "negro".

"As for the racist abuse I receive last nite I did not deserve at all ... to be called a negro for a game of football," he added.

"2013 kick racism out of football, retweet if you are against it thank you, no

matter what race sex or nationality STOP RACISM OUT OF FOOTBALL."

Samba offered fans the chance to win free tickets as a way of further apology.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
