The Red Devils didnâ€™t perform throughout the game and with Tevez starting on the bench, much could be asked about Fergusonâ€™s tactics.
Now former Champions League top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo is putting most of the blame on Sir Alex Ferguson.
The reigning Ballon dâ€™Or and World Player of the Year even hinted at a move to Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo enraged at Sir Alex Ferguson
After Manchester Unitedâ€™s Champions League defeat to Barcelona in the final, Cristiano Ronaldo was asked by the media if he would remain at Old Trafford next season for which he replied:
â€œIâ€™ve played many games under a lot of pressure. The future? Weâ€™ll see.â€
Ronaldo, who was speaking to The Sun, completely revealed his anger against Alex Ferguson and his tactics during the final:
â€œFerguson did not tell me anything. Nothing.
â€œI didnâ€™t realise I was to play as a striker. Against Arsenal in the semi second leg I played and played well but that is all.â€
It is a huge possibility that Cristiano Ronaldo would want an exit from Manchester to join Real Madrid in the summer, but the 24-year-old, who pledged his future for the Red Devils a week ago, looks annoyed and confused about the current situation.
The number 7 starâ€™s belief in the old Scott Alex Ferguson has certainly altered following Manchester Unitedâ€™s poor performance in the final of the Champions League in Rome. Now Ronaldo â€“ who recently stated that his dream move to Real Madrid was dead â€“ seems to be completely baffled.
Tired Ronaldo now focused on firing Portugal to the World Cup finals
Journalists around the world are curious to know Ronaldoâ€™s decision on his career future, but the disillusioned Portuguese Superstar winger has now turned his attention on his country Portugal who is struggling in the qualifiers.
â€œMy future for now is the national team, we must win to be back on track in the World Cup qualifiers.
â€œI donâ€™t want to talk about clubs, I want to rest, go on holidays because Iâ€™m very tired.â€
Indeed, Portugal have one foot in the den of anguish; Cristiano Ronaldo will need to lead his team on a mesmerizing track before their dream of reaching the World Cup is over.
Portugal play Albania on June 10.
