“We gave the ball away for the third goal having been in complete control of the match at that point,” Ferguson told Sky Sports 1. “All we needed to do was see the game out with good possession.
“Nani is experienced but he’s a player who wants to beat men and I often discourage him from that.
“In that situation, if we’d kept the ball at the corner flag, the game’s over.
Ferguson also bemoaned his side’s profligacy and inability to take their chances, while praising the home side’s counter-attacking.
“We had a lot of attacks and nothing came of them, and their counter-attack was very good, but if you’re winning 3-2 in the final seconds of the game then you should see it out,” he said. “We’ve only got ourselves to blame really.
“They’re at home, you’d expect them to attack and they did.
“The way we approach games is always wanting to win, so you were always going to get an open game.”
