I’m to blame – Atletico Madrid coach Aguirre

Aguirre said after the match: “There are always bad games, but the speed of which our rivals annihilated us is something that does not happen very often.

“They surpassed us in all aspects of the game. It is lamentable. There is no excuse to concede three goals the way we did in the first eight minutes. That was how long the battle lasted because the game was over by then.

“It has been very lamentable. There is no explanation to concede three goals that way in the first eight minutes.

“But I am the one who is solely responsible. I failed in the line-up, in the preparation, in the team talk, in not re-arranging our attack after eight minutes… in everything else.”
