Ferguson accepts Euro failings

Published Add your comment

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has conceded he got it wrong in Europe this season.

For the first time since 1995, they will take part in a European competition other than the Champions League when they make their Europa League bow against Ajax in Amsterdam.

"Depending on our previous form in the group stages to make changes was working fine for us because our home record was always so good," he said. "But we threw it away in our home game against Basel and were unlucky against Benfica. That caught us short and we suffered for it."
