Fergie Happy With Substitutes Increase

Last updated : 08 February 2008 By Sam
As from the beginning of next season substitutes will be increased from five to seven.

The United boss, however, does feel that the figure should be eleven!

"I have said that for years. It should be 11 subs on the bench, as most clubs carry a squad of 22 or 23 players," Ferguson told skysports.

"At least this helps.

"Last Sunday at Tottentham we had players sitting in the stands who could have been on the bench contributing something towards the team."
