Milla takes blame for early exit
HID Olympics 2012,
Spain football coach Luis Milla says he is happy to take full responsibility for his side's early exit from the Olympics.
La Roja came into the competition as one of the favourites for gold after the boss retained much of the squad that won the European under-21 Championships last summer. However, the 1992 champions struggled to gel this time around and have now been eliminated following defeats to both Japan and Honduras. Milla's men face Morocco in their final game on Wednesday before flying home and the 46-year-old accepts that he must take the blame for his side's poor displays. "I am very disappointed because I think we deserved more," he said. "The person responsible is myself; we need to sit down and analyse everything that happened. "The fans will think the coach has been a disaster, that this has been a total failure and I understand that. But we need to be calm now and analyse what went wrong."
