After a disappointing ousting in the Champions league semi final stage at the hands of Real Madrid, the Bavarians boss congratulated Real Madrid goalie Keylor Navas for his performance at the Santiago Bernabeu, which gave Real the platform to progress to the final in Kiev.
The Costa Rica shot stopper stopped Jupp Heynckes men from scoring on eight separate occasions and was definitely the man of the match.
"Real can thank Keylor Navas because he was spectacular and made some fantastic saves," Heynckes said in his post-match press conference. "If you look at both matches I think we have been the better team, so it's a big disappointment not to reach the final."
Heynckes was also pleased with the desire shown by his team across the two legs.
"My team had a great attitude and we got up again," Heynckes continued. "It's been a world class match, but the injuries hurt us in the first leg and we are missing five players. "I still had full confidence in all my players and I will not look for excuses, it doesn't seem right."
Heynckes did go on to confirm he would retire again from football at the end of the season.
"I will not go back to a bench and that's fine," he added. "There are not many people who get into these adventures at 72. "I don't have any emotion about it. "I'm disappointed by the 2-2 though, as it's been like a defeat for us. "I feel for the group, football has not given them the prize they deserved."
