"My reaction is that I must apologize for this performance. I take 100% responsibility for what happened today," Hasenhuttl said.

"I think they did very well until the end to stay here and stay with us. We have to apologize for what happened today and get up again."

"You can call it helpless, you can call anything you want. It was a disaster.

"I have not played a game like this in my life and I also thought it could not happen. It's been 12 or 13 years as a coach and it was an experience I have never had in my life so far."

Before the game, Hassenhuttle said he thought his team could have a "dirty win" after no home win since mid-April.
