Varane takes responsibility for Madrid’s early exit


Real Madrid are out of the UEFA Champions League for the second in a row thanks to Varane’s error on the night.

Rafael Varane was culpable for both goals scored by City, as his errors allowed City take the game away from the visitors and the Frenchman was quick to accept the blame for letting his team down on a crucial Champions League tie.

Speaking to the media, Varane says he feels sad to let him teammates down “This defeat is mine, I have to accept it, I am responsible for this defeat. We had prepared well but you pay for your mistakes. I am sad for my team-mates. At 1-1 we had the chance to qualify and today things did not go to plan”.
