Sir Alex Ferguson Wants Manchester United to Attack Real Madrid: The Nightly EPL

You never know when to believe Sir Alex Ferguson. The nature of the news cycle is that he’ll say one thing and then something completely different happens, but no one goes back to report on what he initially said. A good example of that is how he said during the weekend that Manchester United would field two squads — one against Everton, and another to play versus Real Madrid. Except that he decided to start all of his best players against Everton.

Ferguson came out today and said that he wants Manchester United to attack Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. But will he? ‘Wants’ is a key word. Everyone wants to go out and attack, but whether they will or not is a different matter entirely fueled by a) how the opposition plays against United, and b) whether United starts off in a defensive shell or not.

No matter which tactics United pick, it’s going to be an intriguing matchup in one of the most hyped matches of the season.
