Manchester United football manager relieved after nervy win
16th March 2011 - Chad Lazarus
Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson says that injuries made the final minutes of the club's Champions League 2-1 win against Marseille a nervy affair.
Despite scoring an early goal through Javier Hernandez, Marseille continued to create chances, before Hernandez added a second after halftime.
However, a late own goal from Wes Brown set up a nervy finish for the home defence, which had lost both John O'Shea and Rafael to injuries during the game.
Football manager Ferguson said that the unsettled line-up in defence made the team nervous late on.
He said: "In defence it was maybe a lack of understanding between the players.
"We have changed the back four many times and without the experience of Nemanja Vidic or Rio Ferdinand you are going to be under pressure at times."
United have now made the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the fifth consecutive year and will find out their opponents in Friday's draw.
