Fergie Happy After Good Result

Sir Alex was undoubtedly happy after his side secured a comfortable 2-0 win over a strong Blackburn team.

The United manager praised the opponents and admitted that only the first goal gave United the upper hand in terms of performance. He also had words of sympathy for David Dunn.

'They are a good side, no question about that,' he told Sky Sports. 'In the first half, in particular, it was an end-to-end game.

'The decisive moment was the header and then a quick goal after it killed them really and then we had easy possession of the ball.

'I thought the lad (Dunn) was a bit unlucky. He tried to read Saha and thought he was coming back towards goal and caught him.

'The second half was a professional performance and we kept possession well. We didn't take a great deal of risk, but we could have scored a couple more.

'I'm really happy with that result because they are a good side.'


Though I did not feel that Giggs had such an exceptional game, the boss was full of praise for the veteran Welshman.

'I thought Ryan was absolutely fantastic today, particularly in the second half.

'He didn't play last Wednesday and now he's got a two-week break before we play Bolton.

'Retiring from international football has helped him, I don't think there's any doubt about that.

'Although he's 34 at the end of the month, you look at him today and the freshness showed. He can go on for years yet, he's a wonderful servant to us.'
