Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has refused to hide away following his terrible performance against Watford Sunday afternoon and has taken to Twitter to apologise to the Arsenal fans.
The 31-year-old has accepted the blame for the result and promised to work hard to help Arsenal achieve their goals.
Today’s result is not good for us. I feel responsible for this result, so I would like to apologise to all of you. I don’t like to hide, and I will keep working hard in order to achieve our goals. pic.twitter.com/to7IOViTcS

Fair dues to the guy and of course his apology is accepted, but the truth is that while you can respect him for apologising and accept that apology, it does not mean that we cannot continue to criticise him.
The brutal truth is that he is not good enough to play for Arsenal and I doubt this will be the last apology he will be issuing, he is always one pass away from making an error.
Sokratis has done the right thing and behaved with integrity, there is no BS from him and his conduct will be a good lesson for the younger players to take on board.
Just a shame some of his more experienced teammates cannot act in the same way when it comes to being honest and saying sorry to the fans they have so let down.
