Manchester United v Galatasaray - UEFA Champions League

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 19: Michael Carrick of Manchester United celebrates as he scores their first goal during the UEFA Champions League Group H match between Manchester United and Galatasaray at Old Trafford on September 19, 2012 in Manchester, England.)

Manchester United edged out Turk­ish Super League team Gal­ata­s­aray 1–0 at Old Traf­ford in their UEFA Cham­pi­ons League open­ing encounter on Wed­nes­day night. Eng­land inter­na­tional mid­fielder Michael Car­rick pro­duced the only goal of the game when he roun­ded the goal­keeper and put the ball into the back of the net on seven minutes.

Sir Alex Fer­guson:

“Gal­ata­s­aray have got more exper­i­ence in their team and in the first half we gave the ball away and they counter-attacked well from that, I think there was a lack of con­cen­tra­tion at times. It’s unusual for us to be as frivol­ous with the ball. In the second half we did much bet­ter in that respect. I was pleased with the second half. It was more solid, we had bet­ter con­cen­tra­tion and we saw it out really well. They never made any chances and all the chances fell to us. Manchester United could have scored four or five in the second half. They were very con­fid­ent in their play and possession.”
