A “sad” David de Gea was forced to admit that Manchester United were “not good enough” after they were dumped out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid
The Red Devils were once again left to rue gluttony of missed chances and a lapse of concentration at the back, as Renan Lodi’s 42nd-minute header made the difference at Old Trafford.
United had a slew of chances throughout, with the best falling to Anthony Elanga and Raphael Varane, but the heroics of Jan Oblak helped Atletico secure safe passage to the quarter-finals.
Renan Lodi scored the only goal at Old Trafford as Spanish champions Atletico advanced to the quarter-finals 2-1 on aggregate.
“We are really disappointed with the result. It’s difficult to put into words how we feel now at the moment. We did not do enough in both games to win it.
It’s a very disappointing day for us,” De Gea told BT Sport.
“They are a team with a lot of experience. They know how to play those Champions League games.
They scored a goal, they are a tough team so it was hard for us to create chances. We are out of one of the most important competitions so we are very sad.”
United have reached the last eight of Europe’s top club competition just twice since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. The club’s last trophy came when they won the Europa League five years ago.
“Of course, it’s not good enough. It’s hard for the club, for us and the fans. It’s really hard,” said De Gea.
