Contrary to rumours in the press today, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes will not all be leaving at the end of the season according to Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Daily Mail had reported that Giggs & Scholes would be retiring whilst Ferdinand would be looking for a new club come May but speaking in his pre Swansea presser the manager dispelled this as simply press speculation that he ‘wouldn’t pay too much credence to it’.
As United travel to Swansea for Sunday’s game Sir Alex has no new injury worries and welcomes back Jonny Evans whilst Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa will start training with the first team on Monday. The midfielder has been out since October when he pulled up with a hamstring complaint in the 3-2 win over Braga.
“Rafael is still out with a hamstring injury, Nani is still injured. Vidic might not be ready to start. Evans is fit and Kagawa takes training with the first team on Monday. Vida is doing great in training, it’s just a matter of picking the time to bring him back. It gives me options with Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand and Evans.”
Ahead of Sunday’s game, Sir Alex was very complimentary of Michael Laudrup’s side. The Swans currently sit 11th and are proving tough customers for any side they face:
“You’ve seen the results they have had and the progress they have made as a football club over the last years. The important thing for me is they try to play and have the courage to play their football, which is good.”
