Fergie to ponder selection

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson is facing up to the biggest selection headache of his managerial career as he attempts to pick a squad for Manchester United´s Champions League final against Chelsea.

The United boss has no injury or suspension worries ahead of the Moscow clash a week on Wednesday and is delighted to have 26 players to choose from, but - with Ferguson able to name only seven substitutes for the match - he must tell eight of his stars they will play no part in the club´s biggest game for nine years.

"I think picking the team will be easier than picking the substitutes," he said on Sky Sports News. "I´m going to have to leave some fantastic players out of the squad completely next week, which I won´t enjoy doing."
