Fergie clarifies yesterday's praise for the 'excellent' Glazers. If you don't like it go and watch Chelsea...

"I think it's much better than it was as a PLC, I can tell you that. You would have to go through all the procedures of PLC board meetings, the football club board and then the PLC board and then inform the stock exchange.

"We don't have to bother about that now. It's much quicker. You can get an answer 'yes' or 'no', whereas with the PLC it was always a long procedure.

"I have been happy. I look at my perspective [as you always do]. They have supported me 100 percent.

"They have given me the money I wanted for January. So what do I say? Tell lies? [Erm, it's never bothered you before, has it?] It has been great. I have not had any problems with it."
