Yuto Nagatomo was understandably disappointed with being sent off but happy for the win: “For the second one, obviously I would never have wanted to touch the ball with my arm, but it was an instinctive gesture. I touched it and the ref said it was a handball. I was disappointed but what mattered was that we got the win and I have my team-mates to thank for getting it. This is the first red card I’ve had in my professional career. I’m sorry it happened in the derby of all games.”
