Fergie talking before the second leg as United lead the way in promoting the
Worthington Cup back to some level of standing:

"There is no doubt the standing of the competition has been helped by
ourselves and Liverpool getting to the semi-finals"

"The second-round bye handed to the teams who are in Europe is fair and
has helped a lot because it gives you the incentive of going further."
