Ferguson confident over youngsters

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson is certain he is doing the right thing by introducing another batch of talented youngsters to his Manchester United first-team squad.

In Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley, Ferguson has integrated a quartet of English players into his Old Trafford plans that could provide a platform for United over the next decade.

It maintains a philosophy Matt Busby introduced with his famous Babes back in the 1950s, and Ferguson told Sirius XM: "I believe in young people. You need a foundation at a football club and that is vital. You can build a first team, but you really do need the back-up and the foundation to make it a football club."
