Dutch coach Louis van Gaal's decision to substitute Cillessen made him kick water bottles towards the substitutes' bench on Saturday.
"I want to apologise to the fans. I was shocked at being substituted but I apologised to (chief goalkeeping coach) Frans Hoek and I will do the same in front of my teammates," said Cillessen.
