The Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said that he is still lots of words when thinking about the defeat suffered at the hands of Chelsea in the final of the Champions League. Bayern Munich were up against Chelsea in the final of the Champions League.

Despite having numerous chances to win the match, Bayern Munich ended up losing the match 4-3 on penalties. This gave Chelsea their first victory in the competition after being extremely unlikely on numerous occasions in the last nine seasons. Bayern Munich had a lot of shots on goal, but failed to beat the English club on their home patch.

The German clubs have always had a reputation for being extremely strong when it comes to penalty shootouts, which was the opposite for the Premier league club Chelsea. However, Petr Cech prove to be the hero of the match after he saved a penalty from Arjen Robben in the extra time, while also going on to make two more saves in the penalty shootout. The Spanish midfielder Juan Mata missed the first penalty for Chelsea, but all the remaining penalties were converted by the Chelsea players including the winning penalty by the striker Didier Drogba. Now, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has expressed his disbelief at this loss.

"You can only see what really happened when you look at it without emotions. I watched the Champions League final again during my holiday, and I have to admit that it was rather interesting. However, I understand even less how exactly we managed to lose this game against Chelsea. This was a once-in-a-lifetime chance, and we didn't grab it. We will always be reminded of this. You play the final in your own stadium against a team that you must beat. It was not a matter of having the chance to beat them," said the CEO.
