The former Chelsea defender David Luiz has said his disaster-class performance yesterday cost his club embarrassing lost to Manchester city, he said "It's not the team's fault, it was my fault.
Today I think the team did well, especially with 10 men, the coach is amazing, the players did amazing, it's just my fault."
David Luiz has taken the blame for Arsenal's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City, but insists he wants to extend his contract at the club.
Luiz did a catalogue of errors in a torrid 25-minute cameo appearance as 10-man Arsenal suffered a heavy loss at City on the Premier League's return
Though he did not start the match but was brought on as a substitute in the 24th minute following an injury to Pablo Mari, the Brazilian's error led to Raheem Sterling's opener (45+2) before he was sent off for hauling down Riyad Mahrez inside the penalty area four minutes into the second half
The 33-year-old's contract at Arsenal is also set to expire in the coming weeks, but he insists he wants to extend his stay at the Emirates 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, it's just my fault.
"I took the decision to play, I should have taken another decision in the last two months, but I didn't. It was all about my contract, whether I stay or not. I have 14 days to be here, and that's it. Today was my fault
"I don't want to use it as an alibi or an excuse, but it's my fault and that's it.
"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."
