Ferguson praises United fightback

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson hailed the fighting qualities of his side as super-sub Javier Hernandez inspired them to a come-from-behind 3-2 win at Aston Villa.

Two goals from Villa striker Andreas Weimann put the home side in control early in the second period. But Hernandez, a half-time replacement for Ashley Young, scored twice and saw his shot deflect off Villa skipper Ron Vlaar for the other United goal.

Ferguson said: "It reminded us of a cup game here a few years ago when we were 2-0 down. I think Van Nistelrooy scored a couple and we won 3-2."
