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!"
