Pique Has 'Horrible' Night
Manchester United's Gerard Pique has described the loss against Coventry City in the Carling Cup as a 'horrible feeling'.
The Red Devils were dumped out of the competition by the Championship side on Wednesday night, after suffering a 2-0 home defeat.
Sir Alex Ferguson made 11 changes to his side, and was expecting his up and coming stars to see off The Sky Blues' challenge.
However, goals either side of half-time from Michael Mifsud secured a memorable success for Iain Dowie's men.
Pique has spoken of his disappointment, and has rued his side's costly mistakes.
"Looking up at the scoreboard at the final whistle and seeing 2-0 was a horrible feeling, especially when you're up against a Championship side at Old Trafford," he told the club's official website.
"I thought we started the game well and had some good possession. But their first goal brought them alive.
"After the break we didn't feel good and when they scored the second it was a horrible feeling.
"We know we did a lot of things wrong, but you can always learn from these situations and hopefully we will grow as players.
"Some people will think we've missed our chance. We're all very disappointed.
"We gave everything we could on the pitch, but things just didn't go our way."
