The French central defender for Real Madrid took the blame on his side once the round of 16 series against Manchester City ended.
One of the reasons why Real Madrid was eliminated from the round of 16 of the UEFA champions league against Manchester City were their own mistakes. In this case, specifically those of Raphael Varane, which concluded with the two goals of the Citizens for 2-1.
After the match, the French central defender blamed himself and told Movistas: “I stand up because this defeat is mine and I have to take it, I’m sad about the effort my teammates made. I have my responsibility, we were fine and We had prepared it well, but mistakes pay dearly at this level, I have no explanation for these mistakes, it happens in football, I have to accept it and it’s a bad night for me. “
Despite this, the Frenchman had the support of his teammates, to which he commented: “I felt good in the game, maybe we risked too much at the beginning and we paid dearly. I appreciate the support of my teammates, it did not happen to me many times in my career, but it can happen. There are mistakes all over the field, but there are areas where you pay dearly, there are no further explanations. “
Finally, Varane closed: “You don’t have to talk much, everyone knows that I’m sad and that I assume it, you have to have character to come back better and stronger. I already think about that, but it will be a difficult night because I am a competitor and I failed. I’m not happy. “
