Julian Nagelsmann: "We deserved to lose"

Speaking after Bayern's 1-0 defeat against Villarreal, Julian Nagelsmann admitted his side didn't deserve to take anything from the game.
Bayern München coach Julian Nagelsmann admitted his side deserved to lose after Wednesday's 1-0 Champions League quarterfinal defeat against Villarreal.

"We deserved to lose. We weren't good today. In the first half, we lacked power in defence and had too few chances," Nagelsmann told DAZN.

"The second half was a completely wild game. We gave up control because we were desperate to score, but we could have conceded two more."

Thomas Müller, who was substituted after just over an hour, echoed the words of his coach.

"We'll take the 1-0 result. We know that things could have a lot worse. We have to pay a lot of respects to our opponents. Now we need to pick ourselves back up for the return leg and hit back," said Müller.
