Fergie’s thoughts on United’s Wembley defeat

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted Barcelona were the best side he had ever faced in 25 years as Manchester United manager after his dreams of a third Champions League triumph were wrecked by a sumptuous Spanish performance. United were out passed and outplayed in a 3-1 defeat by the La Liga champions who many believe are the best club side in the world. While Wayne Rooney equalised Pedro’s opener in the first half, second half strikes by Lionel Messi and David Villa gave Barcelona a deserved victory which could have been even more convincing.
