Fergie: It Was Like The Old Days

Preparations for the new campaign are underway as United defeated Aberdeen 2-0, on the 25th anniversary of Sir Alex's first great victory.

Rooney and Carrick sealed the win on an emotional day and gave the boss a lot of reasons to smile - which he did after the game, paying tribute to the current crop of players but also to the collection great lads who served him so well during his days at Pittodrie.

'At times it was a bit slow but I think you expect that in your first game,' he told MUTV. 'I think the important thing is that we put a lot of energy in to get our fitness, which is what you're looking for. Plus we've won a game, which is always a good thing.

'I think they all did alright. There was no great performance but you don't expect great performances, that's the reason for pre-season games. The important thing is they get their fitness, and also to get through without any injuries, which we have done.'

'It was emotional, it was like the old days there today. You don't think about it until you start approaching the stadium and of course the Gothenburg team were here, and it was a special day for them.

'These are the lads that actually won it, I was fortunate enough to manage them and they were a great bunch.'
