VIDEO: Sir Alex Ferguson Press Conference - 01/02/13

Today (Friday) was the weeks scheduled press conference with Sir Alex Ferguson at Carrington Training Complex ahead of the squad traveling down to London to face Fulham tomorrow.

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

Ashley Young is still out but Jonny Evans should return to training today and Rio Ferdinand will definitely start at Craven Cottage. “We’re quite healthy in terms of the players available,” states the manager.

* The boss is surprised Phil Jones is in the England Under-21 squad rather than the seniors. “I haven’t paid much attention to it,” he says, quashing newspaper talk that he is furious at the call-up.

* Work is continuing in a bid to improve the Old Trafford pitch. “It hasn’t  been the same since that game against Newcastle and the deluge of rain.”

* Sir Alex doesn’t feel he needs to warn the players about complacency as he appreciates Fulham played very well in midweek against West Ham. “Every game is treated the same way,” he asserts.

* There is a call for the away fans to roar United on in the capital on Saturday. “We get great support at Fulham which is unusual in the modern day,” he stresses, likening it to trips to Wimbledon in the past.
