Arteta: “My Opinion on David Luiz hasn’t changed”

David Luiz who had a disastrous performance against ManCity has come out to apologize for his side’s loss at the etihad stadium on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian came off for Mari in the 24th minute and was responsible for sterling’s goal at the end of the first half before going on to give away a penalty in the second half earning him a straight red card.

Now, The 32-year old has apologized for his shambolic performances speaking to SkySports after the game: "It was not the team's fail,  it was my fault. The coach is amazing, all the players did amazing, it was just my fault," 

"I should have taken a different decision in the last two months. I didn't - it was all about my contract. I don't want to use that as an alibi or excuse, it's just my fault and that's it. 

"I love to be here that is why I continue to train hard and that is why I came today. Nobody asked me to speak, it is up to me to show my face.

"I want to stay. The coach knows and wants me to stay, we are waiting for the decisions."

Meanwhile, Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta has refused to hold Luiz responsible for the gunners performance tonight saying it was an “horrific” night for the North Londoners.

Arteta told SkySports after the game: "Everything went wrong from the first minute. Every possible accident that could have happened hopefully happened today," 

"He(Luiz) is someone that is very honest and straight forward. My opinion on David Luiz hasn't changed. It won't change because he had a difficult performance tonight."
