Sir Alex Praises Scholes as The Match Winner

April 18, 2010

Sir Alex Ferguson hailed his generals on the pitch at Eastlands after Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and especially Paul Scholes played a big part in a crucial derby win.

“They’ve been in so many derby games over the years, they are vital to us now,” said Sir Alex. “Apart from their own contribution, their experience helps other players as well.”

The manager said Scholes was the pick of his performers, and not just for his decisive goal. “I think he was the man of the match to my mind. I thought he was absolutely fantastic. He’s such a skilful player, he was wonderful today,” praised Sir Alex.

“I was prepared to put him forward a little bit, knowing that there’s no-one better at ghosting into the penalty box and getting into the good positions. There was no-one near him. It was a free header and he took it very well.”

Had Scholes not scored with 15 seconds left, the boss believes it would have become “very, very difficult” for United to win the league.
“I think we deserved to win our game, although I began to wonder if we would win it after missing a few chances. I thought we were heading for a goalless draw.

“[Never giving up] is a quality that’s part of our history, it’s a fantastic thing to have. Knowing how many late goals we’ve scored, you just have to hope it’s going to happen again. It did happen and I think the way we’ve won has given our supporters great excitement. They were fantastic today as they always are.

“Over the years 1-0 wins have been instrumental in a lot of our championship wins. It’s a big result for us.”

Gary Neville : “We Need That Dramatic Goals”

April 18, 2010


Not for the first time in his successful career, Gary Neville’s face said it all when the final whistle blew at Eastlands following the fourth dramatic derby of this exhilarating season.

Just when United’s title hopes looked dead and buried, Paul Scholes popped up to instead bury a header and end a difficult run of results for the Reds in the best possible way. The way the players celebrated, with backroom staff and substitutes racing onto the pitch to join in, was perfectly understandable, says Neville.

“We weren’t getting carried away at the end – if you win a derby in that manner, four games from the end of the season, to give yourself a hope of still winning the title, then obviously you’re going to be excited,” Gary told MUTV.

“Obviously there are always question marks at this club when you lose matches. Today we’re delighted we’ve won that game in such a manner.

“I think the celebration was about coming out of a difficult two or three weeks. And winning the derby means everything, to us, to the players, the fans. It’s something that we needed. We definitely needed that as a club.”

Like his manager, Gary felt the Reds merited all three points against Manchester City, citing his team’s greater number of goalscoring opportunities.

“I thought we deserved to win, from the chances we had in the first half for Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney and a couple of chances in the second half,” assessed the skipper.

“They had a couple as well but I do think we deserved to win. Sometimes you have to watch it back on TV to see if that’s true or not because in the game itself it’s difficult to know if that’s a correct statement. But I felt during the game we had the chances to win it.”

In the end, one chance was enough – thanks in part to a solid defensive performance.

“Nemanja Vidic and Jonny Evans were both excellent. And when we keep a clean sheet, we always think we can win a game because we can always score goals.”

While Neville and his fellow defenders laid the foundations for victory, it was secured right at the death by Paul Scholes’ seventh strike of the campaign. Coming the day after he had signed a new contract to keep him at United for another year, the midfielder’s intervention was reward for a majestic display.

“He deserves it,” said Neville. “He’s passed them to death from the first minute until the last. Then in injury time he’s gone forward and scored a goal. It was a perfect performance from a really great player.”
