Ferguson’s regret…”If you let JISUNG do the Messi mark, Manchester United would have won”

“Alex Ferguson regrets not trying to stop Lionel Messi with one player,” the soccer media Tribuna reported on Wednesday (Korea time). According to media, Ferguson regretted not wearing a manmark at the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final in the 2010/11 season. “There is a reason why we lost the final against Barcelona at Wembley,” he said.

Manchester United defeated Barcelona 3-1 in the UCL final of the 2010/11 season at Wembley Stadium on May 28, 2011 (local time). At the time, Manchester United struggled with the unique pass play of Barcelona. Barcelona Pedro scored the first goal in the 27th minute after receiving a pass from Xavi Hernandez. 바카라

Manchester United also hit back. Wayne Rooney’s shot after exchanging passes with Ryan Giggs in the 33rd minute shook Barcelona’s net. The first half was finished 1-1, but Manchester United collapsed in the second half. Messi’s shot in front of the penalty box in the 8th minute of the second half was sucked into the net. Then, at the 23rd minute of the second half, David Villa scored a decisive goal and Manchester United lost.

Ferguson recalled his defeat at the time. “We should have changed the game by attaching Park Ji-sung to Messi during the half-time. It was a mistake,” Ferguson said. “I watched the game differently in the first half when the score was tied. I thought we could have played a better game. If Park had been attached to Messi, I think we would have won.”

“Messi scored the winning goal in the final and was instrumental in Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United,” the media outlet said. “Not only Messi, but also players such as Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Pedro, and Villa were active in the game.” “In addition, a number of strong defenders have tried to stop Messi in the past, with little success. It is possible that Ferguson overestimated Park Ji-sung.”
