Wanyama apologises for red card

04 January 2016, 19:36

Nairobi - Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama has issued an apology for his red card which contributed to their 1-0 defeat to Norwich on Saturday.

The Kenyan international was sent off on 73 minutes for a mistimed challenge on Canaries counterpart Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, having picked up his second caution of the game.

To add insult to injury, the hosts scored what turned out to be the winner two minutes later through Alex Tettey, and Saints boss Ronald Koeman was critical of Wanyama in his post-match interview.

"When you know you have already a yellow, and you go for that tackle, in that position on the pitch, that is a bad decision from Wanyama," Koeman said.

The 24-year-old has since apologised for his second dismissal of the season, having also been red-carded in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth on November 1.

"I would just like to apologise to the manager, fans and everyone at the club for my red card yesterday," he said on Instagram.

"It was reckless and irresponsible and I should have used my experience to have not let it happen, especially when I was on a yellow card.

"I now just want to focus on getting back on the pitch and helping the team as much as I can."
