Feyenoord's return to the Champions League after an absence of 15 years was something of a shock, coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst admitted while bemoaning the difference in quality after a 4-0 thrashing by Manchester City on Wednesday.

Just over 24 hours after suggesting in his pre-match press conference there was no reason why the Dutch champions could not win their opening Group F encounter, Van Bronckhorst admitted his side were largely out of their depth.

'It was getting acquainted with the highest of levels,' he said after the home defeat in De Kuip.
