Rome, May 28 (ANI): Manchester United’s star striker Cristiano Ronaldo has criticized club manager Alex Ferguson’s tactics in the Champions League final here, saying they were not good enough to neutralise Barcelona’s front line led by Argentine star Lionel Messi.
United lost to Barcelona 2-0, ending their dream of becoming the first team to win two consecutive Champions League crowns.
Leo Messi won his personal duel against Ronaldo as he headed in Barca’s second.
Ronaldo risked Fergie’s wrath by saying: “We didn’t do well. The tactics were not good and everything went wrong for us. We were only in it for 10 minutes and we never found ourselves again.”
According to The Sun, Ronaldo’s rant could cast further doubt on his United future with Real Madrid desperate to land the Portuguese winger this summer.
Ferguson blamed his defence after goals from Samuel Eto’o and Messi stunned United.
Fergie also believes some of his players will feel they let themselves down on the night. (ANI)
