After their defeat vs Man United. The Sunderland’s skipper, who grew up in Salford still a supporter of Manchester United, believes Man United aren’t having bad time, even they are struggling to win. Phil doesn’t think fans will care about the show as long as the team can win the three points.
He also gives credit to SAF who has no problem to give young players, like Macheda, their chance to play at high level.
“No one should be worried if they’re not playing their best football of the season,” he said. “Their big players just roll their sleeves up. Rather than having a wobble, it’s a sign of a great team that they’re winning games like this one and Aston Villa.
“We have seen so many late goals for United over the years and they have been up to their old tricks again in the last few weeks. That just goes to show what a side they are. The manager seems to keep producing player after player and team after team. You wonder how, but he keeps doing it. Credit to him for showing faith in the new lad.”
