Varane owned up after his calamitous errors and apologised to his teammates during his post-match interview.
The Frenchman spoke honestly following his side's defeat to City.
"I wanted to show my face. I got it wrong, this is on me, and we are out," he said.
"I am sorry for my teammates. I am sad that we are out. This has not happened many times in my career."
He added: "Now we must show character, because it has been a hard night."
