Kevin De Bruyne says Man City not good enough for Champions League “It’s a different year, same stuff. I think the first half wasn’t good enough.”
De Bruyne says Manchester City “need to learn” as their repeated Champions League failures are “not good enough”.
City were favourites for this season’s competition heading to the quarter-finals in Lisbon, yet they were stunned by Lyon on Saturday, crashing out with a 3-1 defeat.
City’s talismanic midfielder told BT Sport afterwards: “We need to learn. It’s not good enough. That’s it.”
He added: “It’s a different year, same stuff. I think the first half wasn’t good enough, I think we know that.”
“We started slow and we had not many options. But I think second half we played really well. We come back to 1-1, missed a couple of chances and then, obviously, the 2-1, the 3-1 ends the game. It’s a shame for us to go out in that way.”
