Manchester United manager brands loss as “worst ever day”

Sir Alex Ferguson has called his sides 6-1 thrashing in the local derby on Sunday as “our worst ever day”.

Manchester City took the lead through Mario Balotelli in the first half, but then Jonny Evans was sent off straight after the break, in which City took full advantage of. City then managed to poach another 5 goals following the red card, with Balotelli scoring another, whilst Edin Dzeko also bagged a brace, meanwhile Sergio Aguero and David Silva both chipped in with goals.

Without hesitation, Fergie slammed the score-line in his post-match assessment, whilst City now sit five points clear of United at the top of the Premier League table.
“It was our worst ever day,” said Ferguson.

“It’s the worst result in my history, ever. Even as a player I don’t think I ever lost 6-1. That’s challenge for me too.”

The Red Devils’ manager claims that the game was not out of reach at the break, but has criticised his side tactically.

“I can’t believe the score-line. The first goal was a blow for sure but it was retrievable at 1-0,” he added.
“The sending off was a killer for us. We kept attacking when we went 4-1 down and we should have just said: ‘We’ve had our day.’

“I thought with the experience we had with Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra we would have realised that. But we just kept attacking. We were so open.

“Sometimes there has to be common sense about it.”

Ferguson has revealed that he is aware that the manner in which United react to the defeat will be vital and expects the players to be eager to improve following the result.
“That’s a perfect result for us to react to,” he added.

“There’s a lot of embarrassment in the dressing room today. They’re all disappointed in there, that will make a difference.”
