Sir Alex has confirmed that he and Rio Ferdinand have no issue between them over Ferdinand’s refusal to wear a ‘Kick It Out’ t-shirt ahead of the 4-2 victory over Stoke on Saturday. Sir Alex also confirmed that Ferdinand and Patrice Evra will both be rested for tomorrow nights Champions League clash vs. Braga, ahead of a tough game against Chelsea in the league on Sunday.
“I always feel a union is stronger than an individual, it’s important he airs his grievances to the right people, the FA.” He continued. “I’m making a few changes, i’m leaving out Rio and Patrice Evra. We have a big game against Chelsea.”
This means that Jonny Evans will either partner Scott Wootton or Michael Carrick at the heart of the defence tomorrow night, if I were in charge, I’d give Scott Wootton his chance.
