Courtois tells Moses to keep apology

FA Cup By: Ayodeji Tunde | 28/05/2017

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has told Nigeria international, Victor Moses he does not need to apologise for his 68th-minute red card which left the Blues at disadvantage in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Arsenal in the final of the English FA Cup.

Moses got the marching orders in the 68th minute of the final clash after receiving a second yellow card for diving.

Courtois however blamed the centre referee Anthony Taylor for allowing Alexis Sanchez's controversial fourth-minute opener to stand.

"We are obviously disappointed but I want to say congratulations to Arsenal. They played a good game," Courtois said during his post-match interview after the game.

"The first goal should never have been allowed – it was clearly a hand ball and then Ramsey was offside because he was interfering in play.

"After that goal, we tried to play but they deserved it.

"Then we went down to 10 men and the red card was correct. Victor Moses doesn't need to apologise."

Both Arsenal and Chelsea will be battling it out again in the English Community Shield at the start of next season.
