Benatia would relish £10m United move & Quillon denies Fergie’s transfer approach – Best of MUFC

It’s been a mixed week for Manchester United. Another stint on Channel 5 on Thursday saw them tackle Ajax seven days after beating them 2-0 in Amsterdam. Old Trafford has hardly been the European fortress it once was and a weakened Red Devils’s side succumbed to defeat with Toby Alderweireld popping up late on to snatch a 2-1 win for the Dutchman.

Luckily for United and Sir Alex Ferguson they progressed to the last-16 on aggregate and this week their attentions turn back to keeping their noses in the title race and on the tail of rivals City. A trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich presents a challenge in itself and Ferguson will be calling upon his big hitters to ensure there is no repeat of the 2-0 defeat suffered on their last trip to East Anglia.

This week on FFC the focus has been on whether Fergie would cast a shadow over the future United manager should he take a role upstairs and the gleaming example set by Javier Hernandez who is considered a ‘dying breed’ in the modern game.

Quote of the week

“I’ve got to accept responsibility for picking the team and there were too many young players in the back-four positions tonight. That was a big problem in terms of experience at the back. It was a big risk we took.

“It was a good opportunity to give Jones and Smalling a game, but their lack of experience at pushing up and tightening up a game showed. For a European game it was too much of a risk. We survived it, but it was nervy.”

Sir Alex Ferguson uncharacteristically accepting that he made a mistake with his team selection for the Ajax game (Daily Mail).
