Furious Tim Krul told Mesut Ozil ‘you are lucky’ after Aubameyang’s retaken penalty in Arsenal draw with Norwich
TIM KRUL revealed he told Mesut Ozil Arsenal were ‘lucky’ after they were allowed to retake a penalty in their 2-2 draw with Norwich.
The Dutch keeper saved the initial spot kick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after being booked for time wasting, but Max Aarons was deemed to have encroached in the box before it was taken.
Aubameyang then stepped up again to coolly send Krul the wrong way and taunt the shot stopper as part of his celebration.
It was something the Norwich keeper did not take kindly to, and he spoke about what happened in the aftermath in the post-match interview.
He told Sky Sports: “My job is to get into the strikers’ head and get him to doubt. So I took a bit longer than what the referee liked and he gave me rightly the yellow card.
“I saved the first penalty so it was frustrating that it had to be re-taken.
“After they scored I just said to Ozil: ‘you are lucky’ because the referee helped them a lot there.”
Aubameyang went on to score again in the match as Arsenal came from behind twice to clinch a 2-2 draw.
A leaky defence remains a major concern for Canaries boss Daniel Farke.
