Fergie: Injuries Happen In Football

Sir Alex Ferguson refused to view Rooney's injury as a disaster, claiming that such things always happen in football.

As you are undoubtedly aware, Rooney suffered hairline fracture to his left foot and is set to be sidelined for up to eight weeks. He will miss important games but Fergie seems to trust his squad.

'These things happen in football.

'The way the game is, the competition levels and the speed, you are going to get injuries throughout a season.

'For my last five and six years we have had several players injured at all times so that is why you need squads of 23 or 24.

'The important thing is not to panic in these situations. I always believe if we have 11 players fit to go on the park then we believe we can win the game.

'That never changes from me.'


Well said. One might say that this attitude was crucial in our title success. Hopefully it'll help again.

Zae, yeah, if one was ignoring the fact we played without our goalies for 3 months, and had a minimum of 6 players constantly injured.
Blue is the colour
BITC, boring boring BITC. change the tune mate. we ALL have injurys. we had neville, ferdinand, vidic AND evra out at one point, as well as saha, park, ole and smudge. arsenal had henry out, as well as half of their defence, liverpool had their injurys and so did you. you injurys do not suddenly become more important, its the way football is. you along with all of your chelsea mates should grow up and start looking at the fit players performances, such as fatty lampard, moaner mikel, and that hilario fella, instead of blaming the first thing that comes in to your small, undercompensated heads. idiot!
