Fergie Pats Himself On The Back!

Fergie Pats Himself On The Back!

United's second string cruised into the semi-final against a lacklustre Roma and Fergie barely disguised his satisfaction with his own team selection.

Many were surprised when the starting line-up was announced though Fergie hinted he might make some changes as United were already 2-0 up from the first leg. For me the only shock was Rooney's omission: he rested more than enough due to injuries... Yet no doubt that this gamble, if it can be called one, paid off.

'It's strange how things work out because two of my best players were Tevez and Park,' Fergie said.

'Tevez has a great habit of scoring single goals in games where you have to get one at a vital time.

'My man of the match, though, was Hargreaves. He was absolutely fantastic.

'But quite rightly we trust in all of our squad because they are good players. It tells me these players can play in any type of game.'


Well, our often hailed squad depth was evident again. With Nani and Saha coming back soon, we'll have even more choices. And Fergie thinks this current crop should be enough to beat Arsenal on Sunday.

'Games against Arsenal are always keenly-fought matches. There is never a lot in it.

'I've managed to keep Rooney, Ronaldo and Scholes all fresh for the game, so hopefully that will matter.

'It will be a great game, but we have to think of ourselves and make sure we're ready.'
