Sir Alex Ferguson has branded Manchester United's stunning 3-2 home defeat to Blackburn this afternoon as "a disaster".

United fell two behind to a couple of Ayegbeni Yakubu efforts either side of the interval but quickly replied through Dimitar Berbatov, whose brace took his tally to five in two games. However, Blackburn broke and when David de Gea failed to collect a Morten Gamst Pedersen corner 10 minutes from time, Grant Hanley nodded the winner from close range.

"It is a disaster," said Ferguson, whose side failed in their quest to mark his 70th birthday by claiming top spot in the Barclays Premier League.
