Fergie fears proved correct

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he feared how Manchester United's patched-up defence were going to handle Galatasaray on Tuesday night.

Ferguson's concerns were justified as United slipped to a 1-0 defeat thanks to Burak Yilmaz's second-half header which cost the Red Devils their 100% record in this season's competition, and means they have now conceded the first goal an incredible 12 times in 17 matches in both the Premier League and Champions League.

"We worried about set-pieces and that was the area we suffered," said Ferguson. "That was always going to be a problem considering the lack of experience and height. But otherwise it was a decent performance. Parts of the game were good and we handled the atmosphere."
