Former USMNT player Oguchi Onyewu apologized to Mexico women’s national team defender Janelly Farias after threatening to choke Farias during CBS Sports’ broadcast of the USMNT vs. Mexico game. Onyewu and Farias had a heated back-and-forth early in the broadcast which resulted in Onyewu saying:

“I will come across this desk and choke you.”

Of course Onyewu was joking, but it was on live TV, and you really just can’t say stuff like that nowadays.

He apologized for his poor choice of words:

“Earlier in the show, you know, throughout our banter back-and-forth, I got carried away, for sure. And I said a stupid thing that should have never come out of my mouth. And I am deeply sorry for it and I apologize to you and I hope that you can forgive, don’t take any offense to it. So, I just really wanted to sincerely apologize for what I said.”

Farias accepted Onyewu’s apology with a fist-bump and said:

“I think the fact that you can say that on national television speaks volumes of you.”

All’s well that ends well.
