The Bayern boss also backed Roberto Di Matteo for the full time job at Blues manager
Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes believes that his side have no-one to blame but themselves after they were beaten by Chelsea in the Champions League final, despite dominating throughout the 120 minutes.
The German club took the lead through Thomas Muller with just eight minutes remaining but Didier Drogba levelled in the final minute.
Then, after Petr Cech had saved from Arjen Robben’s penalty in extra time, the customary German efficiency in shoot-out situations failed them as Drogba scored the winning spot-kick to secure a 4-3 triumph.
“Chelsea played the way we thought,” said Heynckes.
“We must blame ourselves for having so many goalscoring opportunities without being able to score until the 83rd minute.”
Heynckes also backed Roberto Di Matteo to be appointed as full time manager.
“I congratulate Chelsea on their victory,” he added.
“If you wish me to say something about Roberto di Matteo it is that Chelsea should give him a three-year contract.”
