Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was happy with the performance of his team during the goalless draw against Villarreal last night.
But Fergie believes his side could have scored four or five goals in the match.
He told Sky Sports: “We made a lot of good chances, we played really good football, we played with speed.
“It was difficult for a couple of players who were playing their first games. It was a big ask for them to complete 90 minutes.
“Maybe in the second half it opened up because a few players were starting to feel it.
“I have no complaints. On another day we could have scored four or five.
“They are a very experienced side, very competitive team. They defend determinedly.”
Fergie added on the return of Cristiano Ronaldo: “He has had a turbulent summer and a lot has been said about it but when I had my meeting in June in Portugal with him that was over.
“He dedicated himself to getting fit and his commitment to the club.
“It (the crowd’s reception) was important for Cristiano.
“I think he realises what a great club he is at and how loyal the fans are. He will take great encouragement from that.”
