Bayern Munich defender Rafinha has apologised after turning up to the club’s Halloween party dressed as an Arab holding what appear to be mock explosives.
The Brazilian was pictured alongside a number of his team-mates on Wednesday holding a box labelled ‘Vorsicht’ – the German word for caution.
Halloween is a scary celebration with exaggerated costumes, it was not my intention to anger anyone through my disguise or hurt someones feelings. pic.twitter.com/ZZumqzpLBD

Bayern Munich’s official Twitter account posted the photo of several players dressed in fancy dress on Wednesday.
One players came dressed as ‘Jigsaw’ from the Saw movies, while others wore ghost costumes. But it was Rafinha’s choice of attire that caught the eye in the picture, which was later taken down.
Rafinha also removed his original apology, posted on Instagram, which featured a picture of him wearing the thawb and keffiyeh.
