The United chief was philosophical with the defeat, reasoning the experience to the younger players and those returning from injury was invaluable.
"It was a fantastic goal they scored to beat us, but overall they didn't cause us too many problems.
"There were half chances and some good balls into the box but I was satisfied because we had some youngsters who got experience and others got game time. That was the intention and we did the same against Galatasaray.
"We achieved what we wanted to achieve without getting the result."
