Fergie Full Of Praise

Fergie Full Of Praise

Wayne Rooney's late strike left Fergie beaming at journalists and offering plenty of praise for his team's display.

We might have had an uphill task in Italy had the scoreline remained at 2-2 but United deserved to win - by the way, first we thoughr Rooney had fired wide but then we saw him running in the opposite direction, arms outstretched and there was an explosion of course...

Fergie himself was delighted, too but did not hide the fact that dreadful defending allowed our rivals to claim two vital away goals.

'We persevered and we kept playing our football,' he told ITV. 'Some of our football was fantastic.

'I think in the second half we dominated. We got hold of it and the equaliser set us up to go and win it.

'It gives us a magnificent chance now. We will be going over there with a big chance.

'We are in front and they know they have a difficult game now.

'We are chasing the title and this is the biggest boost we could have got. It will give us a boost I am sure of it.'

Hopefully, Milan's fitness levels will be deteriorating as rapidly as during the second half at Old Trafford. If Gattuso does not recover, then I agree with the boss that we have an outstanding chance. Fergie added that we have 8 days to get Ferdinand fit - well that would be a massive boost, possibly aided by the return of Gary Neville.

Congrats - great result for you boys and a good match. The Red Mickeys will kick us off the park and put eleven men behind the ball tonight so dont expect anything like such an entertaining game. Still - hope to see you boys in the final. Great goal for Rooney BTW - wonderful goal.

thanks. to be honest, it's an advantage for us in the title race that you'll have to play liverpool for the reason you have mentioned... the second leg, at anfield will be more exciting as it had been in 2005
