Champions League defeat to Cluj.

The Red Devils chief rested a number of his key players with top spot in Group H secured before kick-off.

Luis Alberto’s 25 yard effort settled the tie, but Fergie felt that if not for a moment of magic, his side could have taken at least a point from the game:

“It was a wonder goal that beat us,” he told SkySports.

“We had a lot of good chances but with a goal like that we have no complaints, You can’t do a lot about it.

The likes of Nick Powell and Scott Wootton were give starts by the Scot, who was impressed with their showings:

“We had a young side out that did very well at times. I’m satisfied they put a decent performance in.

“It was a good experience for the youngsters. Nick Powell I though in the first half did quite well for us and Phil Jones had an excellent game. It’s only his second game in about nine months so I’m very pleased with that part.

“We qualified earlier so it gave us a chance to experiment and play the players that needed a game. We gave some young players a bit of experience and that will hold them in good stead.

“We’re into the next stage being winners of the group and there are some big names in there. We could face Shakhtar Donetsk, Milan, Porto.”

“We qualified comfortably and the real tournament starts in February. The knockout stages are fantastic.”
