Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola defended his decision to field a heavily weakened side after the champions lost their first game in 54 in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
Guardiola admitted on the eve of the game to Augsburg that his priority was the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United on Wednesday, and clearly had no regrets about taking such a stance despite the 1-0 loss.
"If this had been important, then Philipp (Lahm), Franck (Ribery) and Arjen (Robben) would all have been here," Guardiola said.
"The Bundesliga is over – that’s in Bayern’s museum already and is staying there.
"We tried to win and fought hard, but you can’t always win in football and we’ve got to accept that.
