Man City defender Demichelis: I only have myself to blame

Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis accepts the blame for their Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

Demichelis gave away a penalty and was sent off in the 2-0 loss.

"I have seen the moment again on TV and think 'why did I have to tackle him and not keep running by his side?'", he told The Sun.

The 33-year-old added: "I was sure that I would get the ball when I made the tackle. And then you think that you will steal the ball from Messi, you realise that you don't. But I made the foul."
