Orlandi 'Very Upset' After Conceding Penalty

Andrea Orlandi admitted he was very upset with himself after conceding the penalty that denied us a win on Tuesday night at Plymouth Argyle.

Swansea City were heading for a 1-0 win at Home Park but the Spaniard handled the ball in the area with just 5 or so minutes remaining, costing us 2 valuable points.

Orlandi told Wales Online that he wants to make it up to the manager, players and the fans for his mistake:

"I`m very upset with myself.

"I don`t know what happened or why I did it.

"I have apologised to all my team-mates, but these things happen sometimes. I am very sorry, but it was just an instinctive reaction and sometimes you don`t know what you are doing.

"I was gutted when I came off the pitch. You feel really guilty because we had been working hard for nearly 90 minutes and then something like that happened.

"I just have to get over it now. I am sorry for the fans and my team-mates, but there is nothing I can do about it now.

"I will just try to put it right with my next performance. Hopefully I can make this up to the team, the gaffer and the fans."
