Ferguson apologises after Man Utd cup exit to Crystal Palace

Sir Alex Ferguson issued an apology to the Manchester United fans after they were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Crystal Palace, The Telegraph reports.

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’.
