“Ulreich got confused, had a little black-out,” Heynckes said.
“He didn’t know if he could pick it up, realised he couldn’t, got nervous and that’s what happened.
“It’s a terrible thing for a player to live through.
“It was a bad moment for my team but we had a lot of chances to score and my keeper played really well overall.”
