Owen Coyle: Felt Wigan did not deserve to lose

Oleg Kuzmin netted the only goal of the game after 22 minutes but Coyle believes the Championship club should not have lost their Group D match.

Thomas Rogne almost snatched a second-half equaliser - his header hit the bar - and following the match in Russia, Coyle said: "I was a little bit annoyed in that from our point of view, it was a soft goal to lose.

"But in the second half, we dominated a very good side.

"We certainly shouldn't be leaving here on the end of a 1-0 scoreline. We have hit the woodwork and had numerous chances in the second half.

"In our first foray in European football, I think this was an outstanding performance - we looked like a very mature European team and I was delighted with them.

"My only disappointment is to leave with no points, because we certainly deserved to take something from the game.

"I felt the players were a credit to the football club. We are disappointed but not with the performance - only in terms that we have taken no points and lost our unbeaten record in European football."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
