Lukasz Fabianski took to Twitter to apologise to the West Ham United fans after his howler against Newcastle United yesterday.
The 35-year-old spilled the ball from a Newcastle corner before Joelinton subsequently slotted home.
And Fab shared his regrets after the game:
The Pole needs to behave himself! There is absolutely no need to apologise.
Everyone makes mistakes, and he clearly didn’t spill the ball on purpose.
Fabianski has been a top class player for us since moving to the London Stadium in the summer of 2018.
Having said all of that, David Moyes should definitely be eyeing up a move to sign Fab’s long-term replacement at some point over the next few months.
Lukasz Fabianski apology not needed but a new goalkeeper may well be
The former Arsenal ace is clearly not the player he once was.
He is still fairly dependable but he has dropped the odd clanger this season.
After Fabianski’s injuries over the past two seasons, his kicking and distribution seems to have regressed badly.
He just signed a new contract that expires in the summer of 2022.
And perhaps then will be the time for a younger goalkeeper to come in and take his place.
The 35-year-old is not a truly elite stopper anymore.
Not one single West Ham fans will be able to question Fab’s dedication and commitment to the cause, however.
