No excuses from Sir Alex
Sir Alex Ferguson pulled no punches after his Manchester United side were beaten 2-0 by Coventry City on Wednesday night.
'I did not expect that at all,' he said.
'I am not interested in giving reasons or mitigating circumstances.
'We have trumpeted these young lads a lot, so what has happened tonight was a big shock for us all.
'We didn't cope with the battle at all - it was just a very bad performance.'
