Former chief executive Garry Cook admits he felt he had embarrassed Manchester City supporters with some of the errors he made while at the club.

Cook resigned from his post at the Etihad Stadium last September following an internal investigation into claims he sent an offensive email to the mother of player Nedum Onuoha. Cook had denied he sent the message. That departure brought to an end a turbulent three years as chief executive which included a number of public relations gaffes.

Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester in an interview to be broadcast in full on Thursday evening, Cook said: "There are no excuses. There are my interpretations and there are the interpretations of the press."
