Romelu Lukaku accused his Manchester United team-mates of “hiding” as Jose Mourinho’s men crashed out of the Champions League.
Lukaku grabbed a late consolation for United but the hosts could not find a dramatic late fightback to move into the last eight of the competition.
“Something was wrong with some players, some players were hiding,” Lukaku told BT Sport.
“I think we started the game well, but then we let them get a bit of control in the game. We had a few half-chances but we didn’t score.
“Then they scored the first goal and from that moment on we tried to chase the game. Then they scored the second one which was a big blow. At the end we kept pushing, but it was not enough.
“We should have done much better today because with the quality that we have in the team, I think we should have gone through. But we didn’t deserve it because we weren’t good enough.
5 – Romelu Lukaku has scored five goals in the Champions League this season, the most by a Man Utd player in the competition since Wayne Rooney (5) in 2009-10. Consolation?

“We should have scored earlier, I think maybe in the first half with the half-chances that we created. The last pass today was not good enough – we always get in the right position but the last pass to each other was not good enough and I think that’s what killed us today.”
