Leon Balogun has shown class after accepting the blame for his side’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon in the English Premier League.
The Super Eagles defender was indirectly blamed for the second goal conceded by Brighton & Hove in their 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking to reporters at the post-match press conference, the Seagulls manager, Chris Hughton said the goal in the 33rd minute was avoidable and knocked the team.
Reacting to his performance against The Blues in a tweet on his official handle he said, “Sad ending to what I think was an overall strong team performance. Very disappointed to leave the Amex empty handed today & absolutely gutted how I contributed to that outcome. Thanks for your support…”
Balogun, who scored a wonder goal just seconds after coming on as a substitute, had put himself in the spotlight in the build-up to the game by revealing that he has masterminded a method of limiting Eden Hazard’s influence but in the end the tables turned on the defender.
