David Navarro says he is ashamed for the brawl that followed Inter's exit.
David Navarro admits he is ashamed for his part in the brawl that followed Valencia's UEFA Champions League draw with Internazionale.
Valencia substitute Navarro was at the heart of some ugly scenes after Inter were dumped out of Europe on away goals at the Mestalla.
Uefa have confirmed they will investigate the conduct of both clubs after the final whistle and the disruption which continued in the tunnel.
Navarro was seen throwing a punch at Nicolas Burdisso that broke the Argentine's nose - a move that incensed Inter team-mates Julio Cruz and Ivan Cordoba and sparked a melee involving players and officials from both sides.
Navarro later admitted he was ashamed by his part in the incident and offered a public apology.
"I want to apologise to all those who have been hurt by my actions," Navarro told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
"I saw someone trying to assault one of my team-mates and just lost control.
"I've never been involved in this sort of behaviour before and it will never happen again.
"I'm repentant and I feel ashamed."
