Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted Manchester United's slack European performances will force him to reassess how to approach games at Old Trafford in future.

Normally so solid on home soil, United have endured a disastrous campaign. Thursday night's defeat to Athletic Bilbao was their second in succession after they almost tossed away a three-goal aggregate advantage against Ajax in the last round.

And after the 3-2 reverse, Ferguson feels a change in attitude is now required, and said: "We have had a bad year in Europe. We conceded three against Basel, two against Benfica, another three against Bilbao and two to Ajax. That tells its own story."
