Man Utd midfielder Pereira apologises to Flamengo fans after Copa Libertadores final howler

Manchester United loanee Andreas Pereira has posted to social media following last night's Copa Libertadores final which his Flamengo side lost in extra time to Brazilian rivals Palmeiras.

Pereira suffered a nightmare moment when he was robbed of possession and allowed Palmeiras' Deyverson a clear run on goal to score the winner.

He posted: "I'm here with a heavy heart! Today I made a mistake!

"There was no lack of will .. and it will never be lacking!

"Difficult moments show the character of our group that in these 3 months welcomed me into the @flamengo family with so much affection!

"I apologize for today's mistake!

"I promise, I will win you back!"
