Lyon coach, Rudi Garcia has come out to admit that his team losing 3-0 to Bayern Munich was injustice.
He recently revealed that he is proud to have reached the semis of the competition even if his boys could not capitalise on their chances against the Bundesliga champions.
According to him, it was disappointing to crash out but he is happy that his players did not give up in the 2nd half of the match.
He added that the score did not reflect how tight the game was but his team will definitely learn from their mistakes.
His words, “We can be proud of our run and our game, but yes, it is the disappointment that prevails,”
“We lacked success because we have to lead by the score and eventually we are led.
“We have this feeling of injustice that has weighed us down a bit. At 2-0, it’s complicated even if we didn’t give up in the second half. We knew they were going to be very high up and that we had to use the spaces behind their backs as was the case on the opportunities of Memphis and Karl.
“What we didn’t do well in the first-half was to use the ball and move them sideways. We did a lot better in the second-half. When you don’t score, you can’t qualify.”
“We believed in reaching the final and the match showed it,”
“When we had the chances, we saw that Bayern Munich were not tight.”
“The score does not reflect the match. You have to get back into the championship quickly and that’s what I’m a little afraid of because it happens very quickly.
“But we have to get back on track quickly because we only play the championship. We know that it will be different and that the game plan will be different. We will have to master our matches from now on.”
