Unai Emery has apologised after kicking a bottle that inadvertently “touched” a Brighton and Hove Albion supporter in the crowd.
A frustrated Emery lashed out during Arsenal’s 1-1 Boxing Day draw against the Seagulls, but appeared to apologise to the fan in question after the unintended incident.
Speaking at a post-match news conference, Emery again said sorry for kicking a bottle that went into the Brighton fans.

I said to them [the supporter], apologies, because I kick the bottle after a disappointing action for us in the last minutes,” he told reporters.
“It wasn’t hard, but it touched one supporter for them. I said to them ‘I’m sorry’.”
Arsenal failed to turn their first-half dominance into three points – meaning they have now won just one of their last five Premier League away games.
