Although Sir Alex Ferguson used last night’s 3-0 victory over Leeds United as an opportunity to give players on the periphery of his first-team squad a much needed game, opposition manager Simon Grayson was still in awe of the quality of personnel his Scottish counterpart was able to call upon for the fixture, an article in the Telegraph
Grayson famously masterminded a 1-0 FA Cup 3rd win for Leeds over United at Old Trafford in January 2010 and would have been eager to oversee another shock last night but readily admitted the attitude and quality of the Red Devils put paid to any such aspirations.
“People don’t see how hard Manchester United work and how powerful they are. They are playing at the top level because they have that fantastic desire to do it every week. The team they put out could have beaten a host of Premier League sides. They caused us a lot of problems and it shows the gulf that is between us.”
