Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, has apologized for scoring an own goal, in their 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Super Eagles attacker deflected Lucas Moura’s header past David Ospina with 13 minutes left.
The result will likely cost the Gunners top spot in Group A and Wenger has called on the 20-year-old to be supported . But the player himself has come out to say sorry.
“I heard a shout from David Ospina, but I reacted a bit late,” Iwobi told Sky Sports .
“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 per cent 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.”
Despite Arsenal’s miserable form in November, Iwobi remains hopeful over his side’s chances in the Premier League.
“When I look at the points it is so tight,” he added.
“It is anyone’s this season. Every team has got that same goal.
“I cannot call it, but I would love to see it be Arsenal.”
