Sir Alex Ferguson press conference 21/09/12

Today was the scheduled press conference with Sir Alex Ferguson at Carrington Training Complex ahead of the start of the visit to Anfield to face Liverpool this Sunday.

As ever, the team were on hand to supply the latest quotes from the press conference which are below:

Team news:

“Everyone who played on Wednesday is available. I know there were reports on Wayne Rooney being available but that’s not the case, though he’s not far away. He could be back next week. Ashley Young has a bruised cartilage – he’ll be okay in two to three weeks.”

On Darren Fletcher:

“He made a start on Wednesday. He won’t start on Sunday but he’ll play against Newcastle – that’s the perfect game for him to start. Then we have Spurs and he may be involved in that.”

On the Liverpool game:

“We’ve given a lot of messages from Manchester United. It’s an important game for both clubs. It’s possible everything around the game could affect the players and the game, but hopefully we can concentrate on a good match. We want to try and achieve a good performance and result.”

On Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers:

“He is a young manager and any young manager needs time. In the modern world you don’t get that. The only route for any manager is success. It’s a results industry. There was less pressure when I started, but the world has changed, the press has changed.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
