'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sir Alex Backs Steve McClaren

Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson has backed former assistant boss Steve McClaren to do well for England.

McClaren took over from Sven Goran Eriksson after this summers tame World Cup campaign where we lost to Portugal via penalties.

Sir Al thinks that McClaren will be able to bring out the best in the squad.

Ferguson said: 'Steve will do well. He has a fantastic group of players and he will get the best out of them. The progress he made with us was phenomenal. From the day he arrived he was always asking questions. Steve was hungry and he wanted to learn.'

'You see younger men like Frank Rijkaard and Marco van Basten making a success of it and I am sure Steve will do equally as well.'

High praise indeed.
