Sir Alex Ferguson met with the media this afternoon at Carrington Training Complex after his teams training in preparation for Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
As reported yesterday, Darren Fletcher is out for the rest of the season after going through surgery to resolve his Ulcerative Colitis condition.
Sir Alex Said: “This operation will hopefully solve the situation and we expect him to be back in July.”
As ever, the manutd.com team were on hand to report back on the main points from the bosses press conference, in charge of reporting back today was Nick Coppack.
Sir Alex Ferguson on:
“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.”
“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.”
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.”
