Alex Iwobi has apologised for his own goal against PSG in midweek.
The 20 year old nodded the ball into his own net, and called it ‘the worst thing possible’. He was about to be taken off anyway, so had no chance to make up for his mistake.
“I heard a shout from David Ospina, but I reacted a bit late,” he 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.”
Can’t fault that attitude, and no doubt he’ll learn from it too. Also, there’s no need for him to apologise, but that he did says a lot about the way he thinks, which augurs well for the future.
