Pochettino Backs Boruc Following Emirates Error

MOST COMMENTED

Southampton coach Mauricio Pochettino has backed goalkeeper Artur Boruc following his sensational error against Arsenal on Saturday. The Poland international, who also conceded a bizarre own goal against Stoke City earlier this season, tried to dribble clear of Olivier Giroud a few times but was ultimately dispossessed as the striker tapped the ball into the empty net midway through the first half of the Gunners’ 2-0 win.

"We want to support our keeper in spite of this mistake, these things happen," the Argentine coach said after the match. Southampton had come into the game in third-place thanks to one of the best defensive records in the league. Pochettino added: "When it goes well we receive compliments, when it doesn't -- as today -- we get negative comments. But that's how we play and we want to continue because it brings us results. I'm clearly unhappy with the result and the way we lost as well, but this is football. We competed until the last minute and that's the positive. We tried our best."

Giroud wrapped up Arsenal's win with a penalty four minutes from time after Jose Fonte was penalized for pulling the shirt of Per Mertesacker in the area.
