Sir Alex Ferguson on Man Utd Cup run: “An important trophy for us”

FA Cup 4th Round: Manchester United 4-1 Fulham

Ferguson post game quotes:

“I’m really pleased that Wayne scored and that Chicha scored two because if I get those two and Robin [van Persie] into the twenty-plus goals mark, we’re definitely in business,” he told MUTV and ESPN after the match.

“We picked a very strong team because we didn’t want to make any slip-ups. The FA Cup is an important trophy for us this season. We haven’t won it for nearly 10 years. Man Utd next round odds on

“The players did well and it was quite comfortable. In the first half Fulham had a lot of possession and there were a couple of squeaky moments. But all in all it was a really good performance by us.”

The Reds got off the mark in the third minute from the penalty spot after Aaron Hughes’ handball. And United should arguably have had a second soon after when Damien Duff clearly handled in the area.

“I think from the referee’s position he obviously thought it was unintentional, but from my angle – obviously I’ve got the benefit of looking at the video at half-time – it was handball,” added Sir Alex. “But we didn’t need any decisions because the performance was good.

“We had some shots in the first half blocked, one hit the bar – we needed that second goal to put us in the comfort zone, and we got that early in the second half and then a third and fourth followed.”
