Arsenal: Fans unite around Dani Ceballos despite penalty miss

Image for Arsenal: Fans unite around Dani Ceballos despite penalty miss

Arsenal fans have united around Dani Ceballos after the player apologised on social media for his penalty miss in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup shootout loss to Liverpool at Anfield.

The on-loan Real Madrid midfielder was the only player who missed their spot-kick after the Gunners drew 5-5 on the night.

On Twitter, he stated: “I will never stop failing for not trying. I will never hide for fearing a failure.”

“If I would have today the opportunity, I would assume the responsibility without a doubt. I am sorry for my supporters, but I want you to know that I will give my soul for this team.”

Fans were quick to show their support for the Spaniard, replying directly to his heavy-hearted tweet.

Ceballos has been a key cog for Unai Emery’s side this season since arriving from Los Blancos this summer, as he has made 11 appearances across all competitions for Arsenal, providing two assists in the Premier League (WhoScored).

What do we think?

None of us wanted the entertaining game at Merseyside, but alas, it was Ceballos’ penalty miss that consigned the Gunners to defeat. The player may have conducted his own post-mortem but the real fault of the defeat was Arsenal’s inability to clear their lines before Divock Origi’s last-minute equaliser. Nothing to worry about, Dani.
