Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was "proud" of his side despite being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals after losing 3-1 at home to Atletico Madrid.
After drawing 0-0 in the first leg, Fernando Torres gave Chelsea the lead at Stamford Bridge. Adrian Lopez equalised for the Spanish side and, a minute after Chelsea's John Terry's header was brilliantly saved by Thibaut Courtois, on loan from the Blues, Diego Costa put Atletico in front with a penalty. Arda Turan sealed the win for the Spanish La Liga leaders.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said: "I can't be critical of a group of players who are trying everything. It's disappointing to lose but I am proud of them.
"I prefer to say we did everything that was possible for us and if we had scored to go 2-1 up we would have been on top of the game."
Atletico will play Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
