Fergie Keeps On Rotating

United are without the injured Michael Carrick at the moment so some changes were forced for Ferguson but he intends to rotate his players to keep them fresh.

Wayne Rooney came on as a substitute against Aston Villa, Ronaldo played only 45 minutes against Wigan whilst Louis Saha and Ryan Giggs skipped the Boxing Day game.

United defeated the Latics 3-1 and the boss was understandably delighted about the three points and the fact he was able to rest two of his key players.

'It has been a good day for us' Fergie declared. 'You get these days when sometimes it goes for you and sometimes it does not, but you have to do your own job and in the second half we did that."

'Wigan are a good team and even when we were 3-0 up in the second half they had us under the cosh a bit. We had to defend well, but the most important thing was that we won.

'We had to make changes because we have to utilise the pool of players we have in the best way we can. We have to refresh the team and that gives those on the fringes the chance to be part of the plan.

'It is important that they make their contributions. If you don't bring them in then when you get a few injuries they have to come in cold.

'We have done that now against Everton and Wigan at home and we will do it on Saturday against Reading at Old Trafford and when we go to Newcastle on Monday.'

for me next to wenger he is the master of knowing how to use his squad, somethign Jose doesn't. he knows how to rest and when and what is needed apart from a hairdryer of getting the best out of his players.
