Aleksandar Mitrovic apologises to Rafa Benitez for touchline antics during Tyne-Wear derby

The Serb firebrand had to be physically restrained by the pair when he tried to get back on the pitch having received lengthy treatment following a clash of heads with Sunderland defender Lamine Kone.

Mitrovic, who had scored the Toon’s equaliser ten minutes earlier, was knocked out cold in the incident.

And the 22-year-old now admits the right course of action was taken when he was forbidden from returning to the fray.
