Queiroz blames friendlies (AUDIO)

Queiroz blames friendlies (AUDIO)


With Sir Alex Ferguson jetting off straight after the final whistle to attend an awards ceremony in South Africa, it was up to his number 2 to answer the questions put to him by the media after United's first loss at home to their city rivals in 34 years.

Carlos Queiroz blamed the international week after the likes of Nemanja Vidic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown among others who spent all week with their respective national sides.

Darius Vassell's goal at the third attempt opened the scoring before Benjani netted on debut to give the visitors a shock 2-0 lead in the match marking 50 years since the Munich tragedy.

Michael Carrick got one back late on however an off colour performance, down in large parts to a very professional performance from Manchester City meant a first league double was suffered by United in close to 38 years.

Rubbish, most teams have to deal with this. Man U don't need to make excuses, but this is just silly.

Whilst the likes of Giggs, Scholes and Brown continue to be selected, and Rooney misses games, for whatever reason, then utd will drop many more points than other title hopefuls
