Bargnani Issues Statement About Sky Sports Interview
By now many Raptors fans have either read or heard about some recent comments made by Andrea Bargnani on a Sky Sports broadcast that were translated from Italian and interpreted from there.
Bargnani has responded to some of the media reaction to his words with the following statement this afternoon:
“I wish to personally clarify and correct an inaccurate portrayal of my words that recently appeared in the media. Much of what I said was taken out of context with respect to an entire conversation.
“I want to make clear my love for Toronto and that I consider the city a second home. I never said that I want to leave Toronto and I'm sorry if fans interpreted the inaccuracy that way.
“I am proud to represent Toronto and the Raptors organization. I appreciate what Bryan Colangelo and the organization has done for me during the past five years of my career. I will always continue to work to improve myself as a player in an effort to reward the organization and our fans with the best team possible.”
His agent is on damage control. Seems like a generic typical PR statement.
