The Brazilian winger, who has joined the Giallorossi on loan from UAE club Al Ain until the end of the season, wore a scarf with the words ‘Lazio Merda’ emblazoned across it.
However, the 30-year-old has taken to Twitter to say sorry to the Biancocelesti supporters.
“I never wanted to disrespect anyone,” he posted. “What happened yesterday was a misunderstanding.
“I apologise to the team and to the fans of Lazio.
“I was thrown a scarf, and only afterwards did I see that there was an insult on it.
“Thank you for all your messages. I’m upset with what happened.”
