Manchester United got knocked out by Real Madrid from Round of 16 of Champions League. The decision made by the referee to send Nani off completely shocked Sir Alex, players and the fans. Sir Alex according to Mike Phelan was too distraught to do a press conference after the match.
Today, in his weekly press conference, Fergie finally spoke about the referee’s decision. He said :
“It’s hard to keep your faith when you see what’s happened the last few years. It’s the third time we’ve been knocked out because of that. It’s not easy to take but we’re Manchester United and we have to get on with it. We now have an important issue of an FA Cup tie on Sunday. My job is to galvanise the troops, who were fantastic on Tuesday. So were the fans. We owe them a good performance.”
