Sead Kolasinac claims the reaction of his Arsenal team-mates to his costly error against Manchester United proves just how ‘tight-knit’ Unai Emery’s squad has become.
Kolasinac bundled the ball into the path of Jesse Lingard, immediately after Marcos Rojo’s own goal, and the England forward made no mistake from close-range to rescue a point for the Red Devils.
Emery revealed that Kolasinac was disconsolate in the dressing room after the final whistle, but the Spaniard insisted he was not ‘frustrated’ after an otherwise impressive performance from the defender.
Kolasinac, who has nailed down the left-back spot in Nacho Monreal’s absence, lifted the lid on how Arsenal players consoled him after the draw.
It’s a good feeling coming into the dressing room like that,’ he said. ‘Especially after knowing you’ve made a mistake and that mistake has potentially cost us two points. It made me feel better.
