Thibaut Courtois admits mistakes as Chelsea crash out

Thibaut Courtois admits mistakes as Chelsea crash out

"This is a quarter-final and if we win we play at Wembley".

"The first goal, I did not expect Lionel Messi to shoot from that angle and I was too late in closing my legs".

"A fantastic player moved the final result".

"I don't think we deserve to be out, but individual mistakes cost us in both legs", the Belgium global told BT Sport.

"This type of player, (there is) one player born in 50 years". A club spokesman said: "We are aware of reports of incidents outside the ground before the game where a number of Chelsea fans were hurt..."

"You can't say we've had much luck: we've drawn the most hard team, the best team in the world".

'I am very pleased to have the opportunity at the end of the game to give him my compliment. We try to do our best in every competition. They arrived three times and scored three goals.

I've played against him [Messi] a lot of times, conceded goals through my legs with him, for a goalkeeper like me from two metres that's probably the weakest point through your legs because if I'm standing in a normal position there's a lot of space in between.




"There's beauty in football but there is also a bad side".

Conte added: "There was a penalty on Alonso at the start of the second half".

The Argentine then set up Ousmane Dembele who hammered home the second after Cesc Fabregas lost possession. I have to praise the commitment of my players.

Antonio Conte has told Chelsea to target lifting the FA Cup and qualifying for the Champions League before the season's end.

Messi missed last Saturday's win at Malaga to attend the birth of his third child and seized control of the tie on his return.

Messi has since thanked the manager for what he said following the game, and added that he is delighted Barca have reached the next stage of the competition.

"He knows in certain moments stars have to come out".

"Now we have to face another competition and for this reason we have to have great confidence and trust in our strength to try to move on".
