Real Madrid defender Varane puts hands up for Man City blunders

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has put his hands up for the two goals conceded in defeat to Manchester City last night.

City have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Champions League thanks to the 2-1 win.

Goals from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus secured a 4-2 aggregate victory for Pep Guardiola's side, however it was the French international who was at fault for both of their goals.

"I wanted to show my face. I got it wrong, this is on me, and we are out," he told El Chiringuito.

He added: "I am sorry for my teammates. I am sad that we are out. This has not happened many times in my career.

"Now we must show character, because it has been a hard night."
