Ferguson: Glazers are great owners

Sir Alex Ferguson has again defended Manchester United owners the Glazer family for their constant support despite much criticism. "They've been great owners," he said. "They have supported me every way I've asked them. "There's no other reason to think they haven't supported me. If you look at any time I've wanted a player they've provided the money; if you look at what we've done this season - and people don't recognise this - we've spent over £20million on young players. "We've bought Chris Smalling, Mame Diouf and Javier Hernandez. "People don't realise how we're structured and how we see our future of the club. We've always based it on a nucleus and foundation of young players developing in the club." The demand for instant success, though, and the "greed" of foreign owners makes Ferguson believe a salary cap will not be introduced in football any time soon. "I don't think so," he said. "This has been talked about for many, many years. There must be concern about the level of salaries in the game. "But, football is worldwide game and there's a lot of greed, particularly with the types of owners that come into the game - Russians, Americans, Middle-East owners. "Salary caps will not come into their domain in the sense of the wealth they have and what they can do with that wealth. "They can attract the best players through that wealth and I just don't see that salary caps come into their area of thinking." What do you think? Have your say.
