Fergie focus on Manchester derby after Cluj defeat

 
 

MANCHESTER, England (AFP) - Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists he has no worries about going into Sunday's Manchester derby on the back of a defeat.

United were beaten for the second successive time in Europe when they slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Cluj on Wednesday night.

Ferguson's side had progressed to the knock-out phase after four matches and he was able to make 10 changes to the team that won 4-3 at Reading at the weekend.

England striker Wayne Rooney, who is continuing to work his way back to full fitness after a spell on the sidelines at the start of the season with a gash to his leg, was the only player to start both matches.
