Luis Suarez right to apologise for 'mistake' - Mancini

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says Liverpool's Luis Suarez is right to apologise after racially abusing Patrice Evra, as he believes it was just a "mistake" that happened on the pitch.

Suarez is serving an eight-match suspension and will miss Wednesday's Carling Cup semi-final first leg against Mancini's side at the Etihad Stadium.
