Fergie impressed with Carrick honesty

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has accepted the blame for Southampton's goal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealed.

Carrick's weak back-pass was compounded by David de Gea's failure to block, allowing Jay Rodriguez to give the Saints a second-minute lead. It didn't prove too costly as Wayne Rooney's double put United ahead before the break and then some backs-to-the-wall defending after the interval allowed the hosts the claim a 2-1 win.

"Michael's pass-back was a bit soft and Michael held his hand up - its great to see that, honest players like Michael saying 'Sorry boss, sorry lads'. It's great," said Ferguson.
