I’ve said sorry to the lads and to the fans. I think I should have just Cruyff’d him to be honest with you but it’s not really my style!AdvertisementAdvertisement‘Daryl’s played the ball back to me and I’ve just tried to just drag it onto my left and hit it out wide and before I know it he’s bloody on me, God he’s fast. Fair play to him, he’s absolutely rapid.‘I was walking off the pitch there speaking to Bernd Leno and he said ‘it’s not your fault, he’s too quick!’ and I totally agree, it’s a good goal to be honest.‘With hindsight with players like Aubameyang, you’ve got to just get rid as quick as you can, you know he’s gonna be on you, it’s not the time to mess about. Just shell it even if it goes into row Z.‘I’m definitely not a modern goalie, I’m happy to put it in row Z, they can’t score from row Z. I just thought I’d probably had a little more time than I did and got a bit slow and lazy with it.‘Lesson learned, next time I’ll put my boot through it.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

ATR’s content will be delivered via its wholly owned streaming platform, Sport Mediastream.Matthew Imi, Chief Executive, At The Races celebrated the new agreement: “We are delighted to have concluded these four important agreements and look forward to working closely with our partners to maximise betting turnover on our racing product.”It affirms the strong relationship between the operators and the broadcaster, and will allow all parties to work collaboratively on digital content innovation over the term.The agreement also shows a growth in support for the turnover-focused streaming model, which has recently faced scrutiny over concerns that operators’ margins could be hit by the new model.At the time of signing the agreement, Rakesh Chablani, Managing Director of Betfred.com, said: “We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with ATR and we look forward to working together in growing our horseracing product.”last_img read more
