“In my personal opinion, this is a very unfair situation and I am not just talking about today. True supporters have to show love today, not just when we win.

“@Kepaarrizabalaga, we are so proud of you, as a goalkeeper and even more so as a human being.

“Humble, outstanding, kind, generous, intelligent, hardworking, talented and the most beautiful soul I have ever met. This is just a small line of a great book. Let’s go my boy, let’s go. Love you.”

“If you want to blame someone, blame me. I made the decision and I don’t consider them a hero. We have a reason. I try to explain the reasons,” says Tuchel.

“This is not the first time and today it took eleven penalties to find the winner, no regrets, if you want to blame someone, blame me, that no matter what.

“We made the same decision as last time in the penalty shootout because Kepa was training with the players [for penalties] everyday and they know how good he is.

“Unfortunately, he was unstoppable – their penalty was brilliantly taken – and it was a bit harsh on him that he was the only one to miss the penalty, but there was none. what’s to blame.”
