Jeju United defender Baek Dong-gyu plans to visit Japan and apologize to Urawa Reds midfielder Yuki Abe after elbowing him in the face during a recent Asian Champions League encounter, Yonhap News Agency reported Wednesday.

Baek, an unused substitute for the South Korean side a week ago at Saitama Stadium, received a straight red card after charging off the bench and running the width of the pitch to elbow Reds captain Abe, sparking an on-pitch fight in the dying seconds of the ACL round of 16 second leg match.
