Feyenoord forward John Guidetti has offered his apologies for getting sent off in Saturday’s 1-1 Eredivisie draw against RKC Waalwijk.
Guidetti, on loan from English Premier League club Manchester City, gave hosts Feyenoord the lead from the penalty spot in the 76th minute of the match at De Kuip.
The Sweden Under-21 international then took off his jersey to celebrate, earning himself a second yellow card and his marching orders.
RKC went on to equalise against the 10-man home side in the 87th minute, and Guidetti has apologised for contributing to the result.
“I let everybody at Feyenoord down,” he told Eredivisie Live.
“This is one of the worst moments of my life. I don’t know what got into me.”
“The emotions just took over. I can’t explain it and I feel really miserable right now.”
“This is really unbelievable. I wish that I could go back in time, but I can’t undo what happened. I’d do anything to undo this, but I can’t do anything about it.”
“I have to learn from my mistake. I have apologised to the lads and hopefully the coach can forgive me.”
Compounding his mistake, Guidetti will now miss Feyenoord’s match away to PSV next week due to suspension.
The striker has scored 18 goals in 16 Eredivisie appearances during a stellar season in the Netherlands.
