De Jong: apologises to Barcelona fans for the Bayern result.

Frenkie believes Barca should've played with more intensity and desire to work hard.

"I think this game has shown that there are a lot of problems in the team. There is a lot to change.

This is difficult for the fans to accept. I also want to say sorry to them," Frenkie de Jong told the media after the final whistle.

"We believed we could beat Bayern. They took the lead, but we then had a few good chances. But they were much better. I don't think it has to do with talent, but more with intensity and a willingness to work hard.

"How we played is a shame. A shame for a club like Barcelona, ​​with the players we have. After half an hour they had already scored four. Then you are disappointed at half time, but do you still believe there is a chance.

"In the second half we were even worse, however. Only in the final phase do you really realise what a disaster this is," the midfielder concluded.

Conceding 4 goals in the first half of a Champions League fixture is something that had never happened to Barcelona until Friday. Besides, no other club have conceded them as fast as the Catalans – within the 31 minutes of the game.

The Bavarians added 4 more goals to their tally after the break and wrapped things up with the 8-2 score. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
