Macheda pleased despite Man Utd defeat

Kiko Macheda was satisfied with his personal performance for Manchester United in their Champions League defeat to Besiktas.

United couldn't find the finishing touch and a breakaway Besiktas goal proved to be the only difference between the two sides.

"We're disappointed to lose because I think we could have won the game," Macheda told MUTV. "We were unlucky because we had quite a few chances but couldn't take them.

"I was quite happy with my performance. If I had scored it would have better, but maybe next time I will score."

Having had his second taste of Champions League action, the 18-year-old striker is aiming to take even more first-team opportunities.

"I hope to play as many games as possible, but it's not easy because there are many good players in front of me. But when I get my chance I hope to take it.

"Now we need to go to Germany and get a result to win the group. But we are confident that we can win the game and win the group, definitely."
