Fergie Sympathy For Obertan

FOOTBALL : Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson offered some sympathy to Gabriel Obertan after the Frenchman squandered two gilt-edged chances in the 2-0 victory against Blackburn.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson offered some sympathy to Gabriel Obertan after the Frenchman squandered two gilt-edged chances in the 2-0 victory against Blackburn.
Obertan came off the bench in the second half for his Barclays Premier League debut after a good performance in the Carling Cup win over Barnsley.
After Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney scored to seal the points in a 2-0 victory, Ferguson said: “Gabriel was a bit nervous when he came on. It was only his second game in seven months, so you have to put it in perspective. But then he settled down and did well. He is not happy with himself and that is a good thing.”
Blackburn, who arrived on the back of nine straight defeats on the road, held out until the 55th minute.
Then Berbatov got the better of Ryan Nelsen after Patrice Evra played the ball in to turn and score.
However it was not until two minutes from the end that Rooney made the points safe, following a sweet finish.
Berbatov told ESPN: “As long as we keep on winning I think everyone will be happy.
“In the first half, I had a couple of chances – you need to be patient and when another one comes, you need to score it.
“It is always difficult to play against Blackburn but when you score you are relieved. You feel that you have done something special and that was the case.”
