Darren Fletcher and Ji-Sung Park give their thoughts on last night’s defeat against Bayern Munich.
“It’s not insurmountable. Although we’re disappointed to have lost two late goals, 2-1 isn’t the worst result in the world. We now know what we have to do at home. We certainly respected Bayern before this match and we’ve still got great respect for them. They’re a very good side. You don’t play any bad sides in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. We’ve learned a lot about Bayern and about ourselves tonight and we’ll take all that into the match at Old Trafford next Wednesday.”
“We’re disappointed because we were leading but ended up losing. The early goal was good for us but we weren’t able to build on it and get the result here. But we have our chance to go through at Old Trafford. We did well defensively, but we conceded a goal from a free-kick, and then for the second there was a bit of miscommunication. That was a mistake, but we can overcome that and get through at Old Trafford.”
