Bayern Munich skipper Oliver Kahn has criticised his team's attitude after their 2-0 home defeat against Milan saw them crash out of the UEFA Champions League.
The former Germany international felt that the 2-2 first-leg draw in Italy somewhat paralysed Ottmar Hitzfeld's squad ahead of the return leg.
"I was probably the only one who did not celebrate our last minute equaliser in Milan, because I knew how difficult the task would be," said Kahn.
"I would have preferred to lose 2-1, because then we would have shown the same attitude we did against Real Madrid [when Bayern lost the first-leg 3-2].
"Then we were able to put up a great fight as we knew we had to win."
While less than enthusiastic about his own side's display, the veteran goalkeeper was magnanimous in his appraisal of Milan.
"To me Milan is probably the best team at the moment," he added.
"They don't need five or six chances, but only two opportunities to score twice, they are technically gifted and defend extremely well."
