    - Rafa was obviously not very happy with this result: "Yes I was very angry after the first game. I was angry with myself, my staff and my players because we had not performed. I cannot analyse the future of a player in one or two games, but some players must realise that they are playing for a European Cup final and for their futures. Things can change quickly and decisions over whether you stay with a top side or leave do depend on these next weeks.

    "From the outside people think I am calm and often that is the best way to get your message across even if you are angry inside. But this was the semi-final of the Champions League and I had to shout to get through to the players that they were wasting an opportunity."
