Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has taken to social networking site Twitter to apologise to the fans for his mistake on Tuesday evening.
The 27-year-old former Atletico Nacional custodian started the Gunners’ Champions League Group F clash against Olympiakos at the Emirates Stadium in North London ahead of Petr Cech.
It was supposed to be a comfortable win for Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger’s side suffered a 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Greek giants.
Ospina, who is the second-choice goalkeeper at Arsenal, was responsible for one of Olympiakos’ goals.
The Colombia international failed to collect a corner and allowed the ball to go in, with the goal counting as an own goal.
Ospina, who joined Arsenal from French club Nice in the summer of 2014, has taken to Twitter to apologise for his mistake, with the North London club’s fans responding to him on the social networking site.
