Real Madrid 2-0 Chelsea: The red card 'was a mistake' - Ben Chilwell to fans

Chelsea defender – Ben Chilwell, has taken to social media to tender apology for his red card during their Champions League game on Wednesday night, claiming it was a mistake.Real Madrid 2-0 Chelsea: The red card 'was a mistake' - Ben Chilwell to fans

Chilwell, who is now full of regrets after he was dismissed in the second half of the clash against Real Madrid apologised to Chelsea fans and his teammates for the silly mistake.

The England international hack down Real Madrid’s youngster Rodrygo as he had a clear shot at goal, forcing the referee to penalize him.

The blunder was caused by Kalidou Koulibaly’s replacement, Marc Cucurella, who appeared to be having trouble adjusting to his new position during the game.

Frank Lampard had to make multiple adjustments to at least maintain the momentum after the visitors’ last night’s attacking threat was effectively eliminated by going down to 10 men.

The red card didn’t Chilwell with Ben, but he maintained that he made the hasty decision in a matter of seconds and that it was a mistake. He also vowed to continue giving his all for the Chelsea team.

The Chelsea left-back wrote on his twitter page saying;

Slept on it, and just want to apologise to my team mates and the fans. I made the decision in a split second last night and it was a mistake. I always give everything for the team and i will continue to do so. Thank you for the support.”

The Champions League quarterfinal still holds a lot of significance for Chelsea’s remaining campaign, but the red card will prevent Chilwell from playing a part in the second leg.

The Englishman has perhaps been Chelsea’s strongest defender since he returned from injury, so his absence next week will be felt greatly.
