United - Ferguson Knocks Friendly Internationals

I guess Sir Alex Ferguson isn`t alone in his condemning of the meaningless round of internationals that some of the United players are involved in this week.

No doubt wary of his players picking up injuries that could rule them out of some, or all, of the remaining fixtures this season, Sir Alex has had this to say about the situation,

"I am all in favour of the competitions - the European Championship, the World Cup."

"But friendlies are a waste of time as far as I am concerned. We always say that."

"It is understandable for the coach. They have the players for a period when they can influence them."

"But every time there are friendlies you get six or seven call-offs. It is sometimes worthless for the manager to build on that because of the lack of players."

Stifling the odd laugh or two, I could point out that supporters of other clubs believe that United are guilty of withdrawing players with minor injuries on more than the odd occasion, perhaps we`ve stumbled on the reason why!

These games should be an opportunity for the fringe England players to show what they've got and why they're more deserving of a spot in the England set-up rather than a kick about for the established players which is beneficial to no-one.
