Fergie Wanted To Take Tevez Off

Fergie Wanted To Take Tevez Off

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted that he had wanted to take Carlos Tevez off moments before the Argentinian's cross was converted by Dimitar Berbatov in the dying minutes at Bolton Wanderers.

'I was ready to take Carlos off and then he makes a goal,' said Ferguson.

'Danny Welbeck is a big lad and I just felt he might get us a goal from a cross. I am always prepared to gamble.'

It wasn't an easy game and though we dominated Bolton and had a few chances the breakthrough came only at the very end, with 90 minutes approaching.

'It shows that the concentration is good - you have to keep good concentration in the game and I think we're doing that very well.

'I thought we played well. Bolton are a very difficult team to play against and in a local derby you're always happy to win the match but we left it very, very late.'


Well, defence wins titles they say but sooner or later United need to start firing again. With games coming thick and fast I can understand this somewhat energy-sparing approach and I like the fact that we are top of the table without really playing well this season.
