Fergie Reflects On Man Utd Victory Over Man City

Sir Alex Ferguson, Manager of Manchester United

A pleased Fergie reflected upon United’s 3-2 victory v Manchester City in the 2011 Community Shield clash.

Mid season, City is on top of the Premier League with Man Utd in second.

Sir Alex Ferguson paid tribute to his players after Manchester United came from two goals down to win an exciting FA Community Shield clash with Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

Joleon Lescott and Edin Dzeko gave City a half-time lead but goals by Chris Smalling and a Nani double in the second period gave United a thrilling, last-minute victory.

“We hope it bodes well for the season,” he said. “I thought our performance throughout the game was very good in terms of the football we played.

“I couldn’t believe we were two goals down at half-time. To me we had controlled the game.

“But goals change games and their second on half-time was a killer blow for us.

“Credit to the players, they kept their heads. We had 13 players under 23 out there, and then you have the likes of Chicharito (Javier Hernandez), (Antonio) Valencia, those sorts of young players. It’s great for our squad.”
