Cristiano and Sergio Ramos tell Lewandowski to join Real Madrid

The 31-year-old - who posted an Instagram picture of his injured foot on Thursday night - was injured in extra time during the build-up to Cristiano Ronaldo's third goal as Bayern lost 6-3 on aggregate. The Bavarian giants were reduced to 10 men in both legs (red cards were shown to Javi Martinez in the first leg and Arturo Vidal in the second leg) and were on the backfoot for the majority of the 210 minutes as the second leg went into extra time.

"I don't think there is a category for him", he said. Defender Mats Hummels says Bayern Munich can not afford to dwell on their Champions League exit to Real Madrid in their quest for Bundesliga and German Cup silverware. We've made a XI of the best players to form one frightening team.

Two of Cristiano Ronaldo's three goals looked off side, adding to Bayern's anger with the referee's decisions as they were eliminated by a Spanish team for the fourth straight time in the competition.

Bayern teammates Philip Lahm and Xabi Alonso will hang up their boots in a matter of weeks, meaning the defeat in the Bernabeu spelled the end of their Champions League playing days.

Bayern, the 2013 Champions League victor, had made it at least to the semifinals for the last five seasons. "That will be a highlight", said Hummels, whose side dropped two points in last weekend's goalless draw in Leverkusen.

Neuer will not need to undergo surgery but will play no further part as Bayern look to secure a fifth successive Bundesliga title, with the club also in the hunt for a second consecutive DFB Pokal.

The reaction of Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to the defeat nearly matched the game for widescreen emotion.

"We played a lot of hard matches this season, but this one was the most hard one", Zidane said. We deserved much more.
