And his manager, Tuchel, did not try to cover up for his star as he claimed Upamecano did not stay focused.

He said: “[Upamecano] made a few too many errors.

“There were two are three situations where he lacked a bit of concentration and made risky decisions.

“That should never happen at this level, in this part of the pitch. He will learn from it.”

Tuchel did insist that there is no anger towards the errors from the French international, despite it leaving Bayern on the cusp of being knocked out.

He added: “We aren’t angry with him.

“He is still young and he will still make mistakes.

“But in a match at this level, you have to play without errors to achieve a result.”
