Full-strength reserve squad, that is!
After all the posturing, legal threats, promises, denials etc., Manchester United have announced their squad to face Hull City on Sunday. And it reads like a who’s who of reserve team football!
First-team strength is provided by Rio Ferdinand, who is supposed to be proving his fitness, and Gary Neville, Wes Brown and Nani, whose current fitness/standing with Sir Alex Ferguson is demonstrated by their being in the squad. The Champions League-suspended Darren Fletcher is also in the squad, of course.
Other than that the most notable names in the squad are young striker Federico Macheda and everybody’s favourite anti-dehydration advert Danny Drinkwater. And let us not forget Ritchie De Laet who stirred up a bit of controversy by announcing he was making his debut earlier this week! Full squad after the jump.
Kuszczak, Amos, Neville, Brown, De Laet, Ferdinand, Chester, Eckersley, Simpson, Fabio, Nani, Fletcher, Gibson, Tosic, Martin, Drinkwater, Macheda, Welbeck
Is that a strong enough side to beat Hull/stop Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough moaning?
