Fergie: Ronaldo too isolated

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson claims Manchester United would have beaten Barcelona in Wednesday night´s Champions League semi-final first leg had Cristiano Ronaldo been given more support by his team-mates.

Despite missing a third-minute penalty, Ronaldo was United´s most dangerous player as they drew 0-0 at the Nou Camp.

Ferguson said: "In Cristiano Ronaldo, I thought we had a player who could win the match. He was a constant threat and I thought that, with better support, we could have won."
