And Silva, 26, who faces Everton today, recalled to The Sun: â€œTo go out of the Champions League was terrible. Itâ€™s a real pain and has damaged us a lot.
â€œThe dressing room was a very unhappy place after the Real game and in our two games since, at Chelsea and Wigan, it has been very hard to recover our morale.
â€œIt wasnâ€™t only the coach Roberto Mancini who was sad.
â€œFor instance, after our defeat by Ajax in Amsterdam I saw a lot of broken people in that dressing room. That was a hard night. Little things cost us in Europe."
