Speaking at the pre match press conference this morning ahead of Sunday’s match against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed the latest team news.
Team news: “We’ve got a strong squad. Jonny Evans still isn’t available. He’s not 100 per cent. Other than that, we’re not too bad. We gave a lot of players a game on Wednesday and I thought they did well.”
Tottenham match: “We now have a hard game on Sunday and Spurs are in good form. We have a fantastic record at White Hart Lane. There’s always a good atmosphere and we enjoy playing there. But we can’t take anything for granted. We have to perform.”
Gareth Bale vs Ryan Giggs comparison: “I think Bale’s a good player, yes. Giggs at 23… I don’t think there was anyone better. It’s difficult to say. They’re different types of players, even though they’re both left-footed and both play on the left.”
Darren Fletcher surgery: “This operation will hopefully solve the situation and we expect him to be back in July.”
Nigel Adkins sacking: “There’s no point in saying we’re surprised because it’s a crazy world and strange things happen in football. But it does seem very unfair.”
