Bravo: It was my mistake, a lapse in concentration

Barcelona goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo made his debut in Barcelona’s 1-0 loss to Napoli on Wednesday evening and the Chilean apologised for allowing a late goal, blaming himself for a lapse in concentration.


In his post-match interview, Bravo took the blame for the error that led to goal.

“I was enjoying a comfortable match, where I had very little issue in handling things. The goal was my fault, without a doubt, a lapse in concentration. I saw him shooting from afar and I thought I could bat it away. These things happen to goalkeepers. One has to learn to live with these things. I haven’t been training for that long, although that’s no excuse. It’s not the first time it’s happened to me, nor is the first time a goalkeeper has made a mistake. In the first half, I had a great stop.”

Luis Enrique supported Bravo in his post-match press conference, insisting these things happen in football and trusted Bravo would correct it in training, but should shake the strikers for not scoring.
