United vs Basel: The After Match

Man Utd boss Ferguson: Berbatov should have passed to Nani for winner

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson they could have won their 3-3 draw with FC Basle - if Dimitar Berbatov had made his pass.
Despite being disappointed with his side's defensive play, the boss was full of praise for the Reds' resilience and attitude to salvage a point.
"When you look at the nature of our club it's not a surprise that we came back, and we could have won it," he said.
"Berbatov had a great chance [in injury time]. If he'd have squared the ball it was a tap-in for Nani.
"The players realised they had to rescue the game and their character got them there."
Yes Berba had glorious chance to win the game but he smashed the ball into side netting. Maybe he was going for self glory at it was at stoppage time. He took the risk and failed. But the game not to blame on one player only. The back line was too fragile. Going forward was awesome but not when under attack.
Basically United had chose the hard way in this campaign.
