Vitesse attacker Armando Broja is disappointed in himself after his huge miss on Saturday in the away match against FC Groningen. The nineteen-year-old Albanian shot in front of an empty goal and partly because of this, his club got stuck in a 1-1 draw.
Letsch: ‘We don’t blame him’
“I blame myself for this, because this was a chance to win the game. Anyway, I have to take this and move on,” said Broja in front of the camera. WE.
Broja was put in front of goalkeeper Sergio Padt halfway through the second half at a 1-1 score by Oussama Tannane. He bypassed the keeper, but then aimed high over with his weaker left leg.
“Unfortunately, these kinds of things also happen in football. I can’t mourn it for too long, because the games follow each other at a rapid pace. I have to make sure that I score more goals for the club.”

Broja, who was substituted in the final phase, remained in the dugout with his hands in front of his face after the final whistle in the Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium. He was comforted in the dressing room by his teammates.
“It was a fantastic attack with a beautiful pass from Tannane. Broja actually did everything right. He has a hard time with it, but we do not blame him. You win and you lose together”, Vitesse coach Thomas Letsch said.
Vitesse may fall behind Ajax due to the draw. The team from Amsterdam will play in-house against Heracles Almelo on Sunday and have a two-point lead over Vitesse, which is currently the leader in the Eredivisie.
