Guti bemoans Madrid instinct

Published: Thursday 11 March 2010, 0.39CET
Guti lamented the inability of Real Madrid CF to "kill" the game after they were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by Olympique Lyonnais. "It was a shame. It has been shown that in big games we do not kill the matches," said the long-serving midfielder of the 1-1 first knockout round draw at the Santiago Bernabéu which helped Lyon through 2-1 overall. "The solution is to be more of a team instead of many individuals. Now we can only think of La Liga, which is what we have [left]. We did not start the second half as we should."
