Fatih Terim: Not happy with Madrid result

Terim went with an attacking line-up in the Spanish capital, but they were behind after less than ten minutes when Cristiano Ronaldo clipped the ball home.

That was followed on the half-hour by Karim Benzema's neat finish before midway through the second period Gonzalo Higuain headed home.

Whilst Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his side's defensive work, Terim was nowhere near as happy with his backline.

"Despite all our work and training, we did not expect to concede such goals," said Terim.

"You need to minimise mistakes in such games. Real Madrid were the dominant side and I accept that."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
