The 0-0 score line that Manchester United had against Aston Villa in Saturdayâ€™s late kick-off was surely not Fergieâ€™s desire. The Red Champions missed the chance to close on Chelsea and Liverpool who also drew goalless.
After dropping two important points, Manchester United could also lose Cristiano Ronaldo for the midweek game in Spain against the Yellow Submarines.
Ronaldo caught up a bad injury which Fergie couldnâ€™t describe more:
â€œHis legâ€™s in a mess,â€ the Scottish manager said after the match.
Ronaldo had a miserable week featuring in Portugalâ€™s heavy 6-2 defeat to Brazil. Saturdayâ€™s goalless draw was certainly not the best of consolation for the Star winger who had passed a century of goals in grand fashion the week before.
Now, last seasonâ€™s European Top Scorer, who is yet to score a goal in this seasonâ€™s Champion League, will certainly miss Manchester Unitedâ€™s trip to Villareal â€“ a team which the Red Champions havenâ€™t managed to score against in over 270 minutes.
