Arsenal deserved to lose:Maupay
London: Brighton match-winner Neal Maupay said Arsenal got what they deserved after they criticised him for his role in a serious injury to goalkeeper Bernd Leno. Leno landed awkwardly after being nudged by Maupay and had to be carried off on a stretcher as Arsenal lost 2-1.
German Leno sat up as he was being carried off and pointed at Maupay, while Arsenal players surrounded the Brighton player at fulltime.
“Some of their players need to learn what is humility,” Maupay said.
Arsenal’s French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi had to be pulled away from Maupay by his teammates after the final whistle as Brighton came from behind to win.
“One of them was talking the whole game and saying really bad things,”Maupay said.
“At halftime I went to the manager Mikel Arteta to apologise. I never meant to injure the keeper. I jumped for the ball. I apologise to the team and to him 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.”
