I feel for him – Ramsey shows sympathy for Iwobi

Alex-Iwobi-537943

Aaron Ramsey has showed his support for his Arsenal teammate, Alex Iwobi who scored an own goal that helped PSG escape with a 2-2 draw in Wednesday’s Uefa Champions League game.

Iwobi headed into his own net in an attempt to clear his defence following a corner-kick taken by the Ligue 1 champions.

He was replaced almost immediately after his howler by Granit Xhaka, and Ramsey absorbed Iwobi of any blame insisting it was not intentional.

“You’ve got to feel for him, but he wasn’t aware of what was behind him,” Ramsey said after the game.

“I feel for him but we’re in it together. It was important not to lose and that’s what we managed not to do.”

Arsenal who are second in Group A must defeat Basel in their last group game, while Ludogorets beat PSG to finish as group winners.
