Sir Alex Ferguson eases fears over Wayne Rooney fitness but blasts beaten United

Rooney, who had given United the perfect start with a goal after just 64 seconds, limped off in injury time of the Champions League quarter-final tie.

"He's got a kick in the ankle, we'll just have to wait and see tomorrow," Ferguson said. "Hopefully it's not too serious. He may be doubtful for Saturday (against Chelsea), but it's too early to say."

We caused our own defeat.

"Bayern were the better team, we can't complain about that, but we're better than that in possession. We kept giving it away and that was our downfall.

"The first goal was a bit of luck with a deflection but the last goal, I don't know how you describe it. The game was done and we gave a terrible goal away."

The second leg is at Old Trafford next week and Ferguson added: "Old Trafford will be a different game obviously. We will be much better, no doubt about that, and hopefully we can recover.

"We have the away goal and we'll go out to win the game."
