"I didn't think of anything," he remembers that moment a few days apart."

"That's football, it happens, I take the blame on myself," he says clearly. "I knew we still had time, it just crossed my mind that we had to keep giving everything", he said after the derby win.

He explained that the slip happened due to the cleats he wore during the game.

"I always play with cam shoes," he said.
