The day started in the worst possible way when Jesus Navas opened the scoring on 14 seconds and after a recovery and couple of chances, it went from bad to worse as City ran in another five goals.

“We’re extremely disappointed.” said Andre. “It’s difficult to find an explanation for a result like this.

“Everything went wrong for us, going from being one of the best defences in the country to suffering six goals in a fixture.

“The only positive we can look at is the 15, 20 minutes after the first goal, we reacted well, could have scored but didn’t, and ended in a more difficult situation.

At half-time, there was a buzz in the team to react to the scoreline but the fourth goal after five minutes made things very difficult for us.

“It’s an embarrassing defeat that all of us have to take. The only way we can react is by bouncing back in the next fixtures.”

Meanwhile, Andre had a message for the fans. "The only thing I can say is sorry. It’s a very poor result, not to our level."
