Glazers have been 'excellent', declares Sir Alex

Sir Alex Ferguson claims the Glazer family have so far proved themselves to be 'excellent' owners of Manchester United.

Malcolm Glazer's £790million takeover of the Old Trafford outfit attracted huge controversy, with some fans so disenchanted by the move they formed a new, breakaway club - FC United - currently operating with some success in the North-West Counties League.

Many fans were annoyed that Ferguson, who has previously indicated he sees himself as a bridge between the club and its fans, chose to stay in his job following Glazer's takeover.

But following the £12million dual purchase of Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra, Ferguson believes the American business tycoon has backed up his plans for the club with hard cash.

While his comments are bound to be greeted with fury by those supporters who have vowed to drive Glazer out of the club, Ferguson feels the Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner has been a force for good.

'Without question, I have found the owners excellent,' he said. 'They have never failed in their promises and support in what we have done.

'They have demonstrated this by their commitment to signing Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic.'

Although the widespread opposition to the new owners has not continued inside Old Trafford since the current season began, anti-Glazer banners have appeared at some away games - while the temporary ice rink installed in a United car park was daubed with similar slogans before it was dismantled last weekend.
