The two players clashed in the second half at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and there were reports that he racially abused Militao.
However, Cucurella has taken to Twitter to offer his side of the story:
He wrote: “I would like to clarify that in no moment did I insult Militao. My words were ‘Shut your f*cking mouth. I apologise if anyone has been offended by this. These are the only statements I have made and that I will make about it. Thank you.”
Cucurella’s explanation followed on from reports that he used the word “mico” (monkey) and not “pico” (mouth) in his confrontation with Militao.
