Although Manchester United managed to go through the next round of the Europa League on Aggregate after losing to Ajax, Sir Alex Ferguson has taken full responsibility for the loss and claims that it is his fault:
“I must say, I’ve got to accept I’m responsible for picking the team and I picked too many young players in the back four positions,” said Ferguson.
“It was a big risk I took.”
“Ajax are fantastic in terms of keeping the ball,” he added.
“Their first goal I thought was a handball [in the build-up] but, although they had a lot of possession, they didn’t look like scoring.
“But that goal gave them confidence and we only had one shot in the second half. I thought we were very poor in the second half.”
In order for Manchester United to win the Europa League the Manchester United boss will be making a lot of changes in his starting eleven and will know that it will not be easy.
