Ferguson says no player guaranteed place in Man U's starting eleven
London, Aug 25(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has sent a clear warning to his players, saying none of them is guaranteed a place in the starting eleven, irrespective of their reputations.
Several players of the United team are now aged 30 or over and Ferguson has been busy signing up young players.
The arrival of Alexander Buttner from Vitesse Arnhem could spell the beginning of the end for Patrice Evra, who was quite average last season, at United.
"It's sensible to keep the pressure on the established players. You need a strong squad - we have 27 or 28 players now - and we are going to use it," the Daily Mirror quoted Ferguson, as saying.
Ferguson lauded Evra for is contribution to the team, but admitted he needed a backup for the Frenchman.
"Evra has been an absolute soldier. He has played with injuries and is the type of player who has the guts to do it. But he's 31 now and, although he is a fit lad, we have to protect the future and Alex comes now to challenge that position," he added. (ANI)
