Maupay fights back – “Arsenal got what they deserved”

    Brighton Hove Albion striker Neal Maupay has apologized for his part Bernd Leno’s injury but insists Arsenal got “what they deserved” from the game.

     Arsenal suffered a double shot of pain in the game against Brighton Hove Albion. Not only did they lose, but they also saw first-choice shot-stopper Bernd Leno go off with an apparently serious knee injury.

    The first half injury was sustained in a clash with Brighton forward Neal Maupay. Leno was unimpressed with Maupay’s challenge and let him know from the stretcher.

    To add insult to injury, Maupay went on to score the winning goal.

    The France youth international is adamant he meant no malice in his challenge, but his winning goal was just what Arsenal deserved.

    He told BT Sport that he spoke to Gunners boss Arteta to apologize for his part, but he was left rather unimpressed by the player’s reaction.

    Maupay said:

    “At half-time, I went to the manager Mikel Arteta to apologize. I never meant to injure the keeper. I jumped for the ball.”

    “I apologize to the team and to him Leno as well. I have been through a bad injury, it is hard.”

    “Arsenal players maybe need to learn humility sometimes.”

    “They were talking a lot. They got what they deserved.”

    “I just went to get the ball really. When he landed he twisted his knee.”

    “It is football, there is contact. I never meant to hurt him. I apologize again and wish him a speedy recovery.”

    Arsenal’s defense fell aprat in spectacular fashion twice again in todays fixture. Will Mikel arteta focus on defensive additions this summer?
