Emre has apologised to Inter for an interview made while on international duty.Emre has apologised to Internazionale after an interview made while on international duty with Turkey was taken out of context.
The 24-year-old reportedly stated he regretted joining the Nerazzurri and wished instead he had made the move to fierce rivals Milan.
"I made a big mistake choosing Inter and not Milan," he was quoted as saying to Vatan. "I had an offer from the Rossoneri when I decided to go to Italy.
"Now I must realise I made a big mistake because Inter are a team without a future and they will never be able to play to Milan's level."
However, Emre has revealed the interview was twisted and that he has evidence to prove he made no derogatory remarks against the club.
"I'm really sorry to have started this problem," explained Emre.
"In the translation from Turkish to Italian from my short interview I did at my national team's headquarters my quotes were changed.
"I didn't want to offend Inter, their supporters, the coach and my team-mates. When I'm back in Italy I'll produce the documents proving I've not said anything against them."
Inter have made no decision as yet whether to discipline the player, who has previously stated he will be leaving the club come the end of the season.
