Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has criticised the tactics employed by his manager against Liverpool last night after the German club were soundly beaten 3-1 at home.
Sadio Mane (2) and Virgil van Dijk put Bayern to the sword to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
And Lewandowski, who found himself isolated up front all night, voiced his frustrations afterwards.
“Of course, we knew it would be a tough game,” Lewandowski said. “But in both games I think we played too defensive.
“We didn’t try to push forward to create situations – in the first game and today. We didn’t risk much, we were playing at home it was our game but that’s why I think Liverpool beat us.
“We were playing too deep, we didn’t take risks, I don’t know why. We tried to push Liverpool but offensively sometimes it was two against four players and that’s why we didn’t do much. ‘
“I have a lot of duels today, it was very difficult because I was alone. If you are alone against two or three good players it’s very difficult to play.”
