Fergie: 'We don't need another striker'
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is adamant he has all the strikers he needs amid continued speculation linking Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov to the club. It is believed Ferguson made an enquiry about the Bulgarian forward earlier this summer but the Premier League champions took the unusual step of categorically denying making any bid earlier this week. There appears to be light at the end of the tunnel for United on the striker front, with Louis Saha set to be on the bench against Tottenham tomorrow after recovering full fitness and Wayne Rooney three weeks away from returning from a foot injury in Ferguson's view. Ferguson said: 'Saha coming back would be a massive boost for us and you're right, he could save us a lot of money. 'He's been out for a long time, so we will see how he feels. 'He has trained well for the last couple of weeks and while I don't think he'll start against Spurs, he could be involved. 'As for Rooney, he's fine. He's jogging and he even wanted to play against Spurs! It's quite possible he'll be back in three weeks.' Ferguson has also taken a swipe at a proposal from UEFA president Michel Platini to award England's fourth Champions League qualification berth to the FA Cup winners rather than the team finishing fourth in the Premier League. 'I don't agree with it. The Champions League is a league and clubs battle through 38 Premier League matches to qualify for it,' the United boss said. 'The idea is totally ridiculous. Chelsea won the FA Cup last season, but they didn't play anyone until Blackburn in the semi-final then us in the final. 'This will come up at the next meeting of European coaches and I know the UEFA committee listen to managers' comments.'
