Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has been fined by the club over comments about fans in his autobiography.
Inter fans displayed banners and demanded Icardi’s removal as captain during Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Cagliari.
However the 23-year-old will remain captain after apologising, saying that he would “make efforts” to have the offending passages removed.
“Within a family, tough times and misunderstandings happen,” he told the club website.
Icardi, who is the club’s leading scorer, claimed in his autobiography that he had been “hailed as a hero” after confronting fans following a defeat at Sassuolo in February 2015.
He was called a “clown” by fans during their home defeat, before being jeered when he missed a penalty with the score at 0-0.
“This has offended a lot of people but you always need to look forward and, if possible, do everything in your power to get things back to normal,” he added.
