Ferguson praises Glazer ownership
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says he is delighted with the impact the Glazer family have made on the club since becoming the new owners.

Malcolm Glazer took control of the Old Trafford outfit in June and Ferguson believes they are in safe hands.

"I have found the owners excellent," he said. "They have never failed in their promises and support for what we do.

"They have demonstrated this by their commitment to signing Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic."

It is the first time Ferguson has spoken publicly about the Glazers' involvement at the club since his first meeting with the family at United's training camp in July.

Angry supporters protested the buyout fiercely and some fans were so disenchanted by the move they formed FC United - currently operating in the North-West Counties League.

Ferguson has splashed out a reported total of 12.5m on left-back Evra from Monaco and defender Vidic from Spartak Moscow.

United supporters feared the owners would not make money available for Ferguson to spend after the club crashed out at the group stage of the Champions League in December.
