      “We made too many mistakes and they produced a great performance,” said the German after the cup defeat

      Sami Khedira acknowledged that Atalanta were the better side on the night as Juventus exited the Coppa Italia in Bergamo on Wednesday.

      “It’s difficult and sad to lose like that, but it’s part of football and we have to accept it,” said the midfielder. “It wasn’t our best night and Atalanta had a great game. They deserved the win and we wish them good luck for the semi-finals.”

      Despite the disappointment of being knocked out of the competition, Khedira called for the Bianconeri to switch their focus to Serie A.

      “These games can happen over the course of the season,” he said. “Of course, it hurts more when it’s a sudden-death game, but it won’t have any consequences for our league campaign. We made too many mistakes and Atalanta took advantage of them – we didn’t deserve to go through.”
