Nani Responsible for Manchester United Loss to Chelsea – Alex Ferguson
Manchester United coach, Sir Alex Ferguson has heaped the blame of defeat in their Capital One Cup game with Chelsea Football Club on Nani for given away a penalty that ensured the Blues leveled the lead, which stretched the match to extra time and eventually ended in 4-5 in favour of the blues.
The Portuguese lost the ball and Chelsea broke away and earned a penalty, which Hazard calmly rolled into the net. United went on to lose the game 4-5 in extra time.
“We gave the ball away for the third goal having been in complete control of the match at that point,” Ferguson told Sky Sports 1. “All we needed to do was see the game out with good possession.
“Nani is experienced but he’s a player who wants to beat men and I often discourage him from that.
“In that situation, if we’d kept the ball at the corner flag, the game’s over.
Ferguson also bemoaned his side’s profligacy and inability to take their chances, while praising the home side’s counter-attacking.
“We had a lot of attacks and nothing came of them, and their counter-attack was very good, but if you’re winning 3-2 in the final seconds of the game then you should see it out,” he said. “We’ve only got ourselves to blame really.
“They’re at home, you’d expect them to attack and they did.
