Fergie Does Not Complain

Fergie Does Not Complain

United are set to face stern tests next week without one of their most experienced players, Paul Scholes who was dismissed during Saturday's game at Anfield.

Scholesy got an automatic three-match domestic ban which means he will sit out our FA Cup tie with Middlesbrough as well as the league games against Bolton and Blackburn. With Larsson due to depart, Solskjaer out after a knee surgery and Fletcher with an ankle injury, United are a bit short in numbers but Sir Alex has no complaints in the case of Ginger Prince.

'I've seen the replay and Paul has lifted his hand which is something you can't do,' Sir Alex told MUTV.

'He's not touched him but I think the referee probably got it right in terms of intent. You can't argue with the decision.'

I thought Paul was really stupid here... he's had a fantastic season and there was just no need and someone of his experience hsould know better.

and he will be banned for three games... really, just at the worst moment. Of course, had he stayed on the pitch we might not have won the game so it's better this way.
