Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu has rendered an unqualified apology to the club’s fans following his mistake in their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.
Atsu was impressive in the early embers of the game as he provided an assist to Jetro Willems to put the Magpies ahead after seven minutes. However, the 26-year-old was later disposed of the ball before Liverpool doubled their lead through Sadio Mane.
The former FC Porto winger admits he was at fault and has issued an apology to the Newcastle United fans.
He said, “We were in the game – we scored one – then it was unfortunate that I gave the ball away.
The second goal was very crucial in this game. I can only apologise to the players and also the fans.”
He added, “They’re a top team. We knew that. Against these teams, when you make a mistake, you’re going to get punished. “They scored from our mistakes, and we have to take the positives out of this and focus on the next game.
“In the first 20 minutes, I thought we were very good. We defended really well. We had a go.
“Like I said, it was very unfortunate that they scored to make it 2-1 from the ball I lost in midfield. Liverpool are very good. When you lose the ball in midfield, they’re going to punish you.”
