'Elbow on C'Ron unintentional'

Levante defender David Navarro said he did not intend to hurt Cristiano Ronaldo after his leading elbow caught the Real Madrid forward in the face and opened a nasty gash above his left eye in Sunday's La Liga match.

"It was an accident, at no time did I try to cause harm to Cristiano Ronaldo," Navarro, who has a history of violent conduct, said on Levante's website.

Navarro had contacted Ronaldo on Monday to ask after his wellbeing and wish him a speedy recovery, Levante said.
