Speaking in the aftermath of United’s biggest Derby defeat against Manchester City, since 1926, Sir Alex Ferguson described the loss as “our worst day ever”
Mario Balotelli’s goal in the first half saw City lead at half time however the sending off of Johnny Evans minutes after the restart changed the game with City going onto score five more through Balotelli, Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko (2) and David Silva, Darren Fletcher scoring a consolation for the Red Devils.
It was our worst ever day,” said Ferguson.
“It’s the worst result in my history, ever. Even as a player I don’t think I ever lost 6-1. That’s challenge for me too.
“I can’t believe the scoreline. The first goal was a blow for sure but it was retrievable at 1-0.
“The sending off was a killer for us. We kept attacking when we went 4-1 down and we should have just said: ’We’ve had our day.”’
