Footballers can often have an excuse for why they didn't achieve their targets, although it's unusual for them to publicly blame their teammates for their own failings.

It seems as if his pain was short-lived, though, with the striker commenting, "It doesn't hurt anymore, but it did at first."
Lewandowski had another remarkable season for Bayern Munich, scoring 30 league goals in 33 appearances. However, it wasn't enough to secure the striker top spot for individual goals scored.
That accolade went to Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored 31 league goals in 31 games.
The Dortmund player has been linked with a move away from Signal Iduna Park this summer, with PSG, Liverpool and Real Madrid all credited with an interest in the Bundesliga's top scorer.
Bayern Munich have also been linked with big-money moves this summer, as they chase Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, with reports suggesting the German giants are willing to offer £40m for his services.
The Chilean international is entering the final 12 months of his contract, and Arsenal would prefer he moved abroad, rather than joined another English club.
