Reports are out claiming that Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has made a public apology after his dismissal in their 2-2 draw at Tottenham.
The French defensive midfielder was shown red with over 35 minutes of the game still to play.
“I didn’t really see the goal [because I was in the dressing room] but someone came and told me that we scored the second one – it was a relief for me,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I did not want us to lose today because at 1-0 I thought we were doing great.
“A point today is a good point, it is a great result for us. I’m really sorry to all the fans for the red card, I think with 11 against 11 we could have won the game as we were playing really well. This red card changed the game. I’m really sorry to the club, to the team and all the fans.
“I actually thought I could get the ball when I slide tackled [Harry Kane] – that is why I went for it. I touched him and [the referee] gave me the second yellow.
“But at the end of the day, it’s a good point and hopefully it will be an important point for the title.”
