Arsenal defender, David Luiz has taken responsibility for the Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on the Premier League’s return.
Brought on as a substitute in the 24th minute following an injury to Pablo Mari. Luiz produced errors in a 25-minute appearance as 10-man Arsenal suffered a heavy loss at the Etihad stadium.
“It’s not the team’s fault, it was my fault,” he told Sky Sports. “Today I think the team did well, especially with 10 men, the coach is amazing, the players did amazing, and it’s just my fault.
The Brazilian’s error led to Raheem Sterling’s stoppage time opener (45+2) before he was sent off for pulling down Riyad Mahrez inside the penalty area four minutes into the second half.
However, the 33-year-old’s contract at Arsenal will expire in the coming weeks, but he insists he wants to extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium.
“I love to be here, that’s why I continue to train hard, that’s why I came here today, that’s why I’ve tried to do everything, that’s why I’m here putting my face up, that’s why I said to the players no one had to speak, I’m happy to show my face and be here.
“I want to stay, the coach knows, he wants me to stay, and we are just waiting for the decisions.”
