Cluj clinch consolation win

Published Add your comment

Manchester United warmed up for Sunday's crucial derby clash with City by going behind for an incredible 15th time this season, losing 1-0 against CFR Cluj.

The Romanian champions held on to condemn Sir Alex Ferguson to his 39th defeat in his 200th European Cup match as United boss, and his third in United's past five European home games.

If there was any meagre consolation at least the winner was not the result of shambolic defending, although Luis Alberto's magnificent second-half strike still was not enough for Cluj to join United in the last 16.
