Juventus winger, Angel di Maria, has blamed himself for his team’s Serie A 1-0 shock defeat to Monza last weekend.
Di Maria received a red card during the encounter at the Stadio Brianteo as Christian Gytkjaer’s goal gave the hosts all three points against Juventus.
Reacting, the Argentine international, in a post via his Instagram account, also apologized to everyone for his inappropriate reaction on the field of play.
“I want to apologize to everyone for this inappropriate reaction I had on the field,” the former Real Madrid, Juventus and Man United star wrote.
“Leaving the team with one less in such a difficult moment of the championship made us lose the game. Losing is only my fault. I’m so sorry.
“I am a professional but also a human being who makes mistakes and knows how to recognize them.”
Meanwhile, Di Maria’s wife, Jorgelina Cardoso, later defended her husband.
She posted: “Making mistakes is everyone’s fault, accepting the mistake and apologizing is a virtue of a few …”
