Like any player who commits a momentous gaffe, Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus wanted to atone for his mistake.

After getting called for a “stupid” (his words) handball in the box, Neuhaus set his team up to fall behind 1-0 early as Robert Lewandowski strode to the spot. Like he normally does, Lewandowski deftly put home penalty kick and gave the Bavarians a one-goal lead.

Neuhaus, of course, was not happy with himself.

“It was a penalty. I acted with instinct but it was stupid from me,” said Neuhaus. “I’m super happy that I was able to make up for that with the goal.”

Ah yes...”the goal.”

Neuhaus took advantage of some really sloppy play from the Bayern Munich back-line and fired a shot toward goal that Manuel Neuer had not chance at saving.

It was the perfect way for Neuhaus to make up for his mistake — and impress one of his potential suitors in the summer.

“After going 0-2 down we had nothing more to lose and we played more bravely. I’m happy that we won,” said Neuhaus to DAZN (as captured by Tz).
