In today’s Manchester United news Sir Alex Ferguson pays tribute to Sir Matt Busby, the Chilean miners will be in attendance for the Arsenal match, and Jonny Evans may be sent on loan.
Sir Alex Ferguson will surpass Sir Matt Busby as Manchester United’s longest-serving manager when his squad travels to Stamford Bridge next Monday. Ferguson is now praising Busby’s influence ahead of this historic moment. Sir Alex admits that being surrounded by the likes of Busby and Sir Bobby Charlton played a key part in his success because he believed in their philosophy of having a strong youth system. It is from that very system that legends like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes have come from, building two decades of success. It is shocking to think none of this may have come true if Mark Robins hadn’t scored all those years ago.
The Chilean miners who were trapped underground for 69 days will be in attendance at Monday’s match against Arsenal. The miners, who were invited by Sir Bobby Charlton, will also get to meet the players prior to kick-off. Sir Alex has also spoken of his excitement for these survivors to come to a training session at Carrington. This is just an incredible feel-good story. It is so good to see our club honour these brave people, and I think it really shows the character of Manchester United.
There is no disputing that Jonny Evans has suffered from terrible form this season, and as a result of his struggles he may now be sent on loan. The 22-year-old centre back is in desperate need of confidence, and Sir Alex could loan him in the hopes Evans will rediscover his form. It would certainly not be the worst thing. Evans has struggled all season and he is hardly reliable at the moment, so sending him to a club with less pressure may be just what he needs right now.
