Sir Alex Ferguson issued an apology to the Manchester United fans after they were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Crystal Palace, The
A stunning 30 yard strike from Darren Ambrose and an extra time header from substitute Glenn Murray helped Palace towards a famous victory at Old Trafford. United failed to perform and despite a Federico Macheda penalty drawing the sides’ level to send the game to extra-time, the Premier League champions were knocked out.
Ferguson gave his condolences to the Old Trafford crowd and was furious at the way his side under-performed. The Red Devils would have drawn a comfortable semi-final tie against Cardiff in the semi-final, but failed to progress past Championship side Palace.
The United boss said: ‘My apologies are to the fans today, because that was not a Manchester United performance. We played too much short passing and didn’t spread the game. Overall, it has been a very disappointing night for Manchester United. It was hard for them, but it won’t do them any harm’.
