Jose Mourinho was at a loss to explain his side’s 4-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund, in the first leg of their semi-final match in the Champions League.
Robert Lewandoski scored all four goals for the home side, while Cristiano Ronaldo got the only goal for the Spanish giants.
Mourinho, who is chasing his third Champions League title and the La Decima for Madrid, however admitted that Jurgen Klopp’s men were the better side.
“I think Dortmund were the best team by far, they won every individual battle on the pitch, they were stronger physically and mentally so I think they deserve it. How did it go from 1-1 to 4-1? I don’t know.
“Everything happened in a short space of time. We lost easy possession and we couldn’t cope with their counter attack and their transition.”
Speaking on the Polish striker, who troubled his side time and again, the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss said: “We know everything about Robert Lewandowski, every detail possible and we lost him in three goals. It’s very disappointing.
“When we lose and we don’t deserve to lose, with me, it’s a drama, when I do deserve to lose I accept it. Of course the boy deserves credit for what he did but we gave him every support for man of the match.”
