'I feel sorry for Ter Stegen' - Bayern's Neuer saddened to see German rival concede eight goals
Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer said he was saddened to see German rival and Barcelona counterpart Marc-Andre ter Stegen concede eight goals in Friday's Champions League quarter-final humiliation.
Thomas Muller and Philippe Coutinho braces, and goals from Robert Lewandowski, Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich saw Barca concede eight goals in a game for the first time since 1946.
Neuer – Germany's number one keeper – expressedsympathy towards his compatriot Ter Stegen post-match.
"I'm a little sorry for Marc-Andre Ter Stegenthat he conceded so many goals," said Neuer.
"It's good for us, of course, but you wouldn't wish that to any team-mate from the national team."
On the match itself, Neuer said: "You could see that we didn't let up a minute and that we always wanted to keep playing forward. Of course, Barca are also strong offensively.
"We know that goals can come. We tried to play on Barca goal until the very end. Accordingly, we were also successful."
Bayern star Thiago Alcantara, who began his career at Camp Nou,produced an impressive performance against his former side in the middle of the park.
"For respect for my friends, the club I've been to and my colleagues, I think they are a great club and that they will turn around any situation that comes their way," the Spaniard said.
