City failed in their bid to overturn a first-leg deficit as they were beaten 2-1 at the Nou Camp to go down 4-1 on aggregate in the last-16 tie.

Kompany said:

"I think I speak for the team in saying we've got nothing left in the tank. We gave everything.

"Only the winners get remembered, but it's only the third year ever for Manchester City in the Champions League.

"I'm looking at this and I don't see why next year we should fear anyone."
