Jorginho, the Arsenal star, was in tears as he opened up about the ‘terrible mistake’ that cost Arsenal a WIN against Tottenham yesterday.
Jorginho expresses gratitude to Arsenal fans after making a ‘painful’ error against Tottenham.
Jorginho praised Arsenal fans for their support following his ‘sad mistake’ in Sunday’s north London derby.
Bukayo Saka’s penalty 10 minutes after the restart appeared to have firmly shifted the momentum back in Arsenal’s favor after Spurs had clawed their way back into the game soon before the half.
Mikel Arteta’s team, on the other hand, shot themselves in the foot right away when Jorginho got himself in a tangle on the halfway line and gave possession to James Maddison.
The England international moved the ball deep into opposing territory and put a brilliant pass into Son Heung-min, who scored his 150th goal for Tottenham.
Rather than turn on their own player, the home crowd screamed Jorginho’s name, while Oleksandr Zinchenko was quick to try to cheer up his teammates.
‘A horrible mistake today,’ the seasoned Italy international said after the game.
‘However, seeing how everyone reacted after it to encourage and lift me up, including my teammates, coaches, staff, and fans, gives me even more motivation to work harder, because all of you deserve my best version.
‘Thank you so much for your generosity, Arsenal family.’
‘I adore him, and we love him,’ Arteta said of the January signing from Chelsea, who came on at halftime to replace the injured Declan Rice.
‘Everyone adores him. That’s part of the game, and they’re entitled to make mistakes because they’re playing.
‘We don’t play, and it’s incredibly easy for us, but if there’s someone there who will support the team and do the most, it’s him. He’s got it, and we’re all rooting for Jorgi.’
