Ferguson regrets Hargreaves disaster

The midfielder had only been on six minutes, and was replaced by Bébe. United went on to win 2-1 with a goal in the dying seconds from Ji-Sung Park.

Ferguson said “we took a gamble with Owen Hargreaves, we thought by doing that it would give us a compact midfield with experience. But he only lasted five minutes. It was a disaster. He has hurt his hamstring, which is unbelievable. It put us under the cosh.”
