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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
