Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he was impressed by the performance of midfielder Nicolas Gaitan in last night's UEFA Champions League clash with Benfica.

The 23-year-old Argentine is believed to have been on the Barclays Premier League champions' radar, and in the build-up to the game, the player spoke of his desire to put speculation to bed, and focus solely on the challenge ahead.

Manchester United scouts are said to have been keeping tabs on Gaitan's progress ever since he signed for the Portuguese outfit from Boca Juniors in May 2010.

And having performed well against the Red Devils, Ferguson took time to pay tribute to the player, who will be paid special attention to, when the two sides meet again in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford.


"Gaitan played with intelligence and showed great individual skill," confirmed the Manchester United boss.

United clinched a point in their opening game in Group C, with a 1-1 draw courtesy of a Ryan Giggs strike - the 37-year-old midfielder continues to roll back the years, after another impressive performance on his first start for the Red Devils this season.
