But recently, after being criticized by Laura Woods – presenter of Sky Sports and talkSPORT, the former England striker had to apologize for his statements.
Agbonlahor admits he let his emotions take over at the time. Mirror quotes the former Aston Villa star:
“I was very bitter after the game. Watching the match from the BT Sport studio, I could see all the Arsenal fans in that match. Seeing them celebrate, I think I got a little jealous.”
“So I retract that comment and I apologize to the Arsenal fans . The way they celebrate is absolutely fine and I’m sure they’ll get a place in the top four.”
