Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick is disappointed about his team’s elimination last night but applauds their fighting spirit and mentality while admitting their lack of efficiency over the two legs cost them.
Bayern beat PSG in Paris by a lone goal but it was not enough to see them through. PSG proceeded on away goals with the scores leveled at 3-3 aggregate.
“The team is disappointed, we’re all disappointed that we were eliminated,” Flick said. “We played two good games. We lacked efficiency in front of goal, in both games.
“I have to compliment the team for their attitude and mentality. In the end, if you add up both games, we were the better team. The decisive factor was that Paris’ ruthlessness in the first leg was superior to ours.
“Nevertheless, I would like to emphasise again that my team tried everything over both games, fought and showed great mentality. Today it’s okay to be gutted, but tomorrow the focus must be on Wolfsburg. We must move on and make sure we’ll perform again on Saturday.”
Bayern Munich will turn their attention back to the league to face third placed Wolfsburg. They hold a five points advantage over RB Leipzig with seven games to spare.
