LONDON (AP) - Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has apologized to his wife and club after being accused by British tabloid The Sun of meeting a model in a hotel room and breaking the club’s rules ahead of a Premier League match.

The France striker took to Twitter to ask for “forgiveness” on Sunday, hours before Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Liverpool in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Sun reported last week that Giroud met the model the night before the Gunners beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Feb. 2.

Giroud said “I apologize to my wife, family and friends and my manager, teammates and Arsenal fans. I now have to fight for my family and for my club and obtain their forgiveness. Nothing else matters at the moment.”
