“We didn’t deserve to lose the game to Manchester United. Though we didn’t play so good in the first half, we did much better in second half and deserve at least a point in the game,” he lamented.
“The result didn’t reflect the play, but we still thank God. “Manchester United are a big team and teams not as big as them tend to have some problems playing them at the start, but we were much composed and played better in the second half.”
