Sir Alex Ferguson has welcomed the extra security Arsenal intend to provide at the Emirates Stadium for Manchester United's visit on Saturday.
Ferguson was unhappy at the treatment he received last year, believing Arsenal supporters have been allowed to get too close to the United dug-out.
"It is quite right they have improved the security," said Ferguson.
After an internal investigation, the Gunners have reviewed their security arrangements and will provide increased stewarding for Ferguson and his coaching staff.
It is hoped the move will prevent a repeat of the ugly scenes during last season`s 2-2 draw which even someone as experienced as Ferguson could not turn a blind eye to.
He added: "Last year was pretty unsavoury. In fact, I think it was nasty. It should not happen when you build a modern stadium like that.
"It is too open for my liking. It is a weakness in the planning that you don't provide safety for the visiting substitutes and staff."
