Ferguson says improvement needed after Man Utd victory over Norwich

Sir Alex Ferguson says his side did not play well in their 2-0 win over Norwich at Old Trafford on Saturday but he feels his players showed great determination and character in getting the result.

Norwich had many chances to go ahead throughout the match until United took the lead with just over 20 minutes remaining through Anderson.

Ferguson described the win as “gritty” and revealed how a few changes in the middle of the park made the difference against the Canaries: “You couldn’t say that was a good performance today but it was gritty and determined as we always are and we never give in which is a fantastic quality,” Sir Alex told MUTV.

“We changed Ji-sung Park into a more central position, and Nani to the wide left position, to allow Antonio Valencia to get forward a bit more on the right. We improved a good bit, we had much more speed in our game and more control. In the second half we improved but we still hardly made any chances in the game because they were so deep. They had everyone in the penalty box, two midfield players sat in front of the back four. I’ve seen that before many times and it’s very, very difficult to break down. We found that today.”
