Joe Hart has laid the blame for Manchester City’s premature exit from the Champions League at the hands of the players.

The Premier League champions have been eliminated from the group stage for a second consecutive season after failing to win a game thus far, collecting only three points from clashes against Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax, the champions of Spain, Germany and the Netherlands respectively.


However, according to the Daily Mail, Hart believes that the responsibility must ultimately lie with the players for their failures, particularly defensively, to adapt to the rigours of Europe’s top competition.


We’re very disappointed,” said the England No. 1.


We’ve had a few opportunities in this group when we could have done a lot better. All the games have cost us. We’ve lost our two away games and not won at home. We led in Amsterdam and led in Madrid. It’s been a disappointing campaign. We’ve surprised ourselves in a very, very bad way in this competition.”


I am disappointed like everyone here,” continued Hart. “We did some mistakes. When we started this group we knew it was difficult.


City next turn their attention to the Premier League, where they are currently unbeaten and top of the table by a point from rivals Manchester United. City’s next fixture seems them take a trip to Stamford Bridge to face a Chelsea side playing for the first time under interim manager Rafael Benitez.
