Roma star apologise for error

Roma star John Arne Riise apologised to the fans following his howler against Shakhtar Donetsk tonight.

The Norwegian defender slipped under no pressure and gifted Shakhtar their third goal in their 3-2 win over Roma.

“We played fairly well and I made an incredible mistake on the third goal, but I think we can win in Ukraine,” Riise told the Italian media.

“I know that the fans are against me now and I feel terrible about this. That is football, but this was truly a negative match for me.

“I was going to hit the ball long, but then I thought about it a moment more and lost my balance. I really don’t know how I did it. I’ve had a similar experience with an own goal in the semi-final for Liverpool. I feel just sick, even physically.

“I hope the supporters can understand that I always give my all. I apologise to them. I went off at half-time because I made a mistake.”
