His thoughts on the game

"I think there are different aspects in this game to explain why we are out.

"I think we produced the game we wanted and we were really unlucky tonight with some decisions of the referee that are very difficult to understand.

"Because we are 1-0 up, it is 100 per cent a penalty on Walcott. [Theirs] it is offside. Lewandowski is offside.

"There is no penalty on top of that you get the red card.

"Of course, that killed us, the game and after that it was very difficult for us to finish the game. Overall it's difficult to understand what happened.

"I still must say my team has produced a huge effort tonight and played very well."

Was Laurent Koscielny's red card a turning point?

"Yeah, of course. You are down to 10 men, you have to score four goals - it becomes in the heads of the players impossible you know. And I think what is terrible is he's offside, Lewandowski and there's no penalty.

"He [originally] gives a yellow card, on top of that he gives after a red card, it's just not serious.

"When you see the importance of the games and you see an attitude like that I am absolutely revolted and sorry for people who come and pay a lot of money to watch these games."

Does it hurt to be out at the last-16 stage again?

"Of course but I felt we were in it you know and you never know how Bayern would have reacted had we scored a second goal.

"And at the end it finishes like that it's difficult to take.

"Of course it looks very bad and doesn't reflect the quality of our performance tonight."

His thoughts on the players' performance

"Yes, I think once it was 2-1 down it was very difficult and you know you have no chance to qualify any more.

"But that's not the part of the game I would like to keep in my mind because I think this second part of the game has been spoilt by the referee."

Anything to say on the pre-game protests outside?

"No, not at all. I have nothing add to that."

Now what?

"Let's keep that [first-half] spirit and play the next game."
