Brown Happy To Play

Brown Happy To Play

Wes Brown got rare starts during the Christmas period with skipper Gary Neville resting. The defender was dropped for the Newcastle games but he's nevertheless happy with his opportunities.

Speculation about Brown's departure is rife in these days but the defender insists he's glad to be of service. The possible loan move of Bardsley and the confirmed move of Evans who has been loaned out to Sunderland are god news for Wes who could still grab his chance to shine for United.

'I've filled in a bit for Gaz over Christmas and it was great to be back,' Brown told the club's official website.

'The gaffer always changes things around at Christmas because of the amount of games we have to play and I was very happy to be selected. Hopefully I'll be involved in the next few games.

'Everyone is battling for places which can only be good for the team. We're all doing very well this season and we want to keep it going.'

'Drawing against Newcastle after going 2-1 up was disappointing but Chelsea didn't take advantage of that,' he admitted. 'We're not going to say it's over but we're definitely confident in how we're playing at the moment; the lads are all buzzing.

'We looked a little bit tired against Newcastle but that's going to happen after a busy Christmas period. Other than that we're playing great football, scoring goals and I think that will carry on.'

He should not leave, despite an offer from Newcastle believed to arrive soon. He's good cover for Gary and he may play his part in this campaign. With all the young defenders loaned out we should keep every player we have until the summer.
