Sir Alex Ferguson arguably the current best manager in the World is set to face one of the most trickiest seasons ever after losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid this summer, although Ronaldo departure was imminent and it is a huge gap to fill. But Alex Ferguson is for sure the man of mission impossible after all…. let us see the past week how was it with the Sir.
Manchester United ended up their preseason in East Asia with comfortable results and a good display from the new number Seven jersey holder Michael Owen. This summer Manchester not only sold Ronaldo they also let Tevez to join city rivals Manchester City, Ferguson though about Tevez case was clear and forward that the little Argentine simply don’t worth £25 million the sum Man City paid for the service of Carlos Tevez. Ferguson and Ronaldo relation still strong as before the opposite of Tevez who tried continuously to hit Ferguson with words criticizing the way Man United boss treated him.
Ferguson this season going to give Wayne Rooney more central offensive role in the team while the young Italian star Federico Macheda tipped by Ferguson as the next world class superstar. During the summer Ferguson brought three new players: Michael Owen, French hot prospect Gabriel Obertan, and the Ecuadorian winger Valencia.
Manchester City received a piece of Ferguson’s tough words, Ferguson slammed arrogant, small team after Man City posing a huge poster for Carlos Tevez, the poster reads: “Carlos Tevez, welcome to Manchester.”
This season should have a fierce rivalry between Manchester two teams as the Eastlands team prepare to break the top four dominance.
Below the main quotes in this week by the Sir Alex Ferguson:
It’s City isn’t it? They’re a small club with a small mentality. All they can talk about is Manchester United; they can’t get away from it. They think taking Carlos Tevez away from Manchester United is a triumph.
Michael (Owen) is a world class forward with a proven goalscoring record at the highest level and that has never been in question
It won’t be easy for them (Manchester City) to win anything, even with the players they’ve bought. I can’t look at them as our main competitors. Liverpool and Chelsea are our main competitors.
I didn’t think he (Tevez) was worth £25million. The fans quite rightly have their heroes and I respect them, so I was happy to go along with a deal as long as it was the right one – but he was simply not worth £25m.
Macheda is top drawer, a hero in the making, just as Cristiano was. It is hard to believe he is just 17. We probably need to check his birth certificate because I reckon he is at least 28.
