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."

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.
