Ferguson focused on league

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted Manchester United have had a disappointing year in Europe after his side crashed out of the Europa League to Athletic Bilbao.

Only Wayne Rooney's late consolation prevented United suffering the worst two-legged European defeat in Ferguson's entire time as manager. The Red Devils won just three of their 10 games in UEFA competition and suffered a hat-trick of losses for the first time since 2004.

"Trying to analyse this season against others is a bit difficult. There is a route in terms of some of the goals we have lost in these tournaments. They have been pretty poor. It has been a disappointing year," said Ferguson.
