Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has spoken highly of Manchester United opposite Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of their weekend clash at Bloomfield Road.

The Seasiders are gearing up for their big clash on Saturday and Holloway admits he has a lot of time for the wily old Scot.

He also wants the club's supporters to enjoy the occasion regardless of the outcome.

"I admire a lot of clubs, but Manchester United have a certain aura and Sir Alex certainly has," said Holloway.

"He gets under people's skin as well because he actually says what he feels and you need that passion.

"It is fantastic for the fans. This season belongs to them. They've waited long enough. It means so much to everybody in the town. It is a community club and it is brilliant.

"However, I just want them to behave themselves and enjoy it because that is what football is all about for me.

"It will be a very proud day for them and for me, and it just goes to show how immense Manchester United are that we all get so excited. They were almost the biggest club in the world before Sir Alex arrived. He's made sure they have become the biggest club.

"But whatever score it is, it will be a great day for Blackpool. The fans totally and utterly deserve this."
