âI thought we were poor. It was a disappointing team performance,â Sir Alex told MUTV. âBoca pressed the ball and it was something we werenât used to from the Far East games.
"No disrespect to the Far East teams, but that was a real game for us tonight in that sense. Weâre back in the real world and hopefully weâll come on from this game.
However, Ferguson was pleased with Antonio Valencia's scoring debut.
âThere were positive moments though - we were very satisfied with Antonioâs first game," he added.
"He had to go back to Ecuador to get his work permit and that meant he missed some of the pre-season work, but he has shown that he has good talent, balance and heâs a good athlete. So we have got something to work with there.â
