Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says manager Sir Alex Ferguson demanded they learn from their Champions League final defeat to Barcelona.

Ferdinand revealed what Ferguson said in a Q&A with United Facebook fans.

He said: "We never go into specifics about what Sir Alex says in the dressing room – that just doesn’t happen. But the gist of it was that we had to learn from it and that Barcelona had set a new bar in terms of the level we had to get to and it was now up to us to reach that bar and get beyond it. That’s the goal now."
