Sir Alex Ferguson

Fergie not worried of Real Madrid

On Tuesday 5 March 2013, Manchester United will host Spanish giants Real Madrid in a Champions League round of 16 reverse tie.

Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United’s manager is not at all worried of Real Madrid ahead of the Old Trafford clash on Tuesday when he reflects back to the first leg that ended 1-1 on Wednesday 13 February

Weren’t curving us open

-Although we expected Madrid to have a lot of possession – and there were periods when they did – there was nothing that worried me unduly.

-They weren't carving us open. They were generally just playing in front of our defenders, across the width of the pitch. We were comfortable with that, he was quoted by soccerway.com.

Good account

-I felt we looked very comfortable and we gave a good account of ourselves. We could have scored five or six goals.

The aggregate winner after the reverse tie will proceed to the quarterfinals.
