Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has revealed why Bayern Munich knocked out his team from the Champions League on Saturday night at Allianz Arena.
Lampard said Chelsea was eliminated from the Champions because they were ‘caught cold’ early on with two goals in the first half and also did not make the most of a couple of half-chances against Bayern Munich.
Bayern defeated Chelsea 4-1 in Germany to advance into the last eight of the Champions on 7-1 aggregate, having won Lampard’s men 2-0 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge in February.
Robert Lewandowski, Ivan Perisic and Corentin Tolisso all scored for the Bundesliga champions, while Tammy Abraham did score a goal for the Blues.
“We were caught cold early on with the two goals in the first part of the game, which is disappointing, but I want to focus on the resilience and performance levels of a lot of players in the team,” Lampard was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying after the game.
“We competed well in the game, we got to 2-1, and we then did not make the most of a couple of half-chances. Then we concede disappointing goals which were individual errors on the pitch. It was an interesting game, there was a lot of good, we are disappointed to lose, but we will be back.”
