Sir Alex Ferguson has stood up for his players, saying he doesn’t understand why they have been heavily criticised this season, Goal.com
United crashed out of the Champions League last week and are currently two points behind archrivals Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
The Premier League champions recovered from their defeat to Basel by mauling Wolves 4-1 on Saturday, and Ferguson insisted he has complete faith in his squad: “The youngsters have all played for their country – Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones – so if they are not that good, why are England playing them?
“My immediate job is to sift through the disappointment and the criticism to get everything in perspective and I can tell you already that I still have faith in our players.
“We will take a lot of stick from critics and even from people we thought were perhaps on our side, but we must not dwell on that.”
