Ferguson hints at no more arrivals


Sir Alex Ferguson does not anticipate adding any more new players to his Manchester United squad ahead of the new season.

Ferguson has signed defender Chris Smalling from Fulham and promising Mexico striker Javier Hernandez this summer and has declared himself content with the squad currently at his disposal.

"I cannot speak about other clubs. We are comfortable with the squad we have got," he said.

"We bought players at the right time of the season and we are happy with what we have."

Meanwhile, Ferguson has been pleased by the way his players are progressing through their pre-season programme on the current five-match tour to North America.

He added:"We are doing double sessions at 9.50am and 5.30pm and that helps us get a little rest after lunchtime.

"The (hot) conditions haven't stopped us – they have been really good.

"The players have been great. They have shown some good application, good concentration and put in some really good work.

"It is now we are beginning to see the benefits of our training. The tempo is at the level we expect of our players."e
