Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi has apologised in his attempt to explain his error leading to Paris Saint-Germain’s equaliser in the Champions League this week.
The Nigerian starlet has been one of the Gunners’ most impressive performers for much of this season, but admits he got it badly wrong as Lucas Moura’s header went in off him in Wednesday night’s game.
The Brazilian’s goal put Arsenal’s hopes of winning Group A in serious doubt, and Iwobi says he’ll have to do better next time after getting caught in two minds after instructions from goalkeeper David Ospina.
‘I heard a shout from David Ospina, but I reacted a bit late,’ the 20-year-old said.
‘I wanted to clear it but was in two minds and ended up doing the worst thing possible. It is my mistake and I apologise. I hold my hands up. But I have to move on and be better next game.
‘I always say I give 100% and what happens, happens. If you play well you play well, if you play badly you play badly. But I can always say I gave my all.
‘Fortunately I have had a lot of luck and most of it has gone well.’
