Butragueno rues Real wastefulness

14 February 2013 15:36

Former Real Madrid striker Emilio Butragueno said he was angry his old side didn't beat Manchester United in their Champions League clash.

The 49-year-old believes his former side could have led at half-time, following a dominant opening 45 minutes from Jose Mourinho's men in their home leg at Santiago Bernabeu in the last-16 tie.

"The first half was ours and we conceded from a set-piece. We had to leave with an advantage on the scoreboard. The team did a great physical effort in the first half," he told Real Madrid's official website.

The former Madrid and Spain star also praised the performance of Sir Alex Ferguson's side, adding: "They defended well.

"Manchester United are a good team; they have a competitive spirit and great players."

Butragueno also praised Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning header, which saw Real enter the second leg on close to level terms - with United technically ahead on away goals.

"It was a great goal and a great example of how to get up. It was a very good - and accurate, something of great beauty.

"I know that there will be a great reception (when he returns to Old Trafford)."
