United head to America without a host of stars


Manchester United jetted off to America for their pre-season tour on Monday with a host of star names missing from Alex Ferguson's squad.

Ferguson is without club captain Gary Neville due to a calf problem, while Rio Ferdinand is still sidelined with the knee injury he suffered just before the World Cup.

Michael Owen is unavailable as he recovers from a hamstring injury and midfielders Antonio Valencia and Anderson are also ruled out with ankle and knee problems respectively.

Owen Hargreaves, who has been hampered by a series of knee problems and will miss the start of the season after suffering a new injury setback, completes the list of Ferguson's walking wounded.

Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Nemanja Vidic are left at home to recover after playing in the World Cup.

However, United fans in America will get a first glimpse of new signings Chris Smalling and Javier Hernandez.

Smalling has completed his move to Old Trafford from Fulham after orginally agreeing the 10 million pounds transfer last season.

Mexican striker Hernandez will feature later in the tour against his former club Chivas after being granted time off after the World Cup.

Portugal forward Nani is also available despite missing the World Cup due to a broken collarbone.

United play Celtic in Toronto on Friday before taking on Philadelphia Union at Lincoln Financial Field on July 21, the Kansas City Wizards at Arrowhead Stadium on July 25 and the MLS All-Stars in Houston on July 28.

They then travel to Guadalajara to play Chivas and United midfielder Darren Fletcher is looking forward to the experience.

"It's a great tour in America," Fletcher told MUTV. "We've not been there in a while. And although three weeks is going to be a long time to be away, there'll be some good games.

"Personally, playing against Celtic will be interesting as I'll be up against a few of my Scottish team-mates. But I'm looking forward to it all really.

"Pre-season is important business in terms of getting fit for the start of the season, but there will be some time for relaxation, which the lads will enjoy.

"There won't be thousands of fans outside the hotel so maybe the lads will be able to get into the cities and wander about and take in a few sights."

Malaysia United Fans Cry Foul Over Jersey Ban


Manchester United's fans in Malaysia erupted in astonishment and anger on social media Thursday after clerics warned Muslims against wearing the team's famous jersey with its "devil" emblem.

Manchester United and the rest of the English Premier League are hugely popular in Muslim-majority Malaysia, where conservative religious leaders said the jersey was un-Islamic and should be banned.

Social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook were flooded with comments from fans in the Southeast Asian nation.

"Maybe the religious leaders are just fans of Liverpool?" quipped one supporter on Twitter.

"Why this become an issue after Manchester United has won the title for 11 times? They haven't been watching the matches all this while?" said Sharifah Shahidah, a die-hard Manchester United fan of two-decades standing.

"What am I gonna do with all my Man Utd jerseys? And my sons' jerseys?" Sharifah, a Muslim mother of two and an IT programmer, asked on her Twitter account. "Should I cover the emblem with a picture of flower?"

Malaysian clerics said Wednesday that Muslims must not wear the iconic red jersey because devils should be shunned, not celebrated, and urged those who had worn the garment to "repent immediately".

Also off-limits are the shirts of teams including Brazil, Portugal, Barcelona and Serbia, all of which carry an image of the Christian crucifix in their team emblems.

"This is very dangerous. As a Muslim, we should not worship the symbols of other religions or the devils," said Nooh Gadot, a top Islamic leader from southern Johor state.

Manchester United Fan Club Malaysia, which has about 7,000 members, declined to comment, but the fan club's chief, Lawrence How, noted there was no official ban on the jerseys.

The clerics agreed there was no "fatwa", or religious edict, but that one was not needed when it was clearly wrong for Muslims to wear such a garment.

Malaysia is a generally moderate Islamic country, but conservative clerics have issued controversial edicts in the past, including a ban on the ancient practice of yoga, which is criticised for including Hindu elements.

Danny Welbeck,Tom Cleverley to be loaned out-SAF

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson intends to send striker Danny Welbeck and midfielder Tom Cleverley on loan to Barclays Premier League clubs in the coming season.

Welbeck, 19, set up the winner for Gabriel Obertan in the 1-0 tour victory against Philadelphia Union at Lincoln Financial Field last night. Cleverley, who is a year older, was in from the start after scoring in the defeat of Celtic in Toronto last Friday. Ferguson believes both players have bright futures but need regular football. Both went out on loan to second-tier clubs last season, Welbeck to Preston and Cleverley to Watford, and both were sidelined with knee injuries.


The way they go about training and matches means they are two of the best in the world to learn from.Tom Cleverley on playing with United legends Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs


Ferguson revealed that Welbeck - a target for Sunderland - is going through a growth spurt. "This is going to be a big season for Danny because for the last three years he has not had a consistent run of games," he said. "I sent him to Preston as you know last year. He got an injury almost right away. He only played five games and ended up having an operation on his knee. One of the things about Danny that may have caused the injury is that he is still growing. He has a weakness in his legs with the speed he is growing. He is about 6ft 2ins and a bit now. He has sprouted up in the last year and a half. So he needs consistent football. He needs to play all the time and that is one of the reasons we are considering sending him on loan again to a premier division team."

Despite being injured, Cleverley was named Watford's player of the year after a loan spell at Leicester. "Tom is a very talented boy. He is going to be a very good footballer. We are also considering putting him on loan to a premier division team," Ferguson said. "He improved tremendously in his spell at Watford last year. He got an unfortunate injury towards the end of last season and was out for a long time. He has just come back and can play anywhere in midfield, which is always an advantage."

Natural mentors
Cleverley is thrilled to playing alongside Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs and believes the two veterans can only help his development. "Last year was a big season for me and I hope this one will be even bigger. This time I have got to prove myself in the Premier League like I have done in the Championship and League One. That is the challenge for me," he said. "Playing for United and alongside someone like Scholesy is what every young lad dreams of. He is a great mentor for me - I look to him every day in training and he is definitely someone I can learn a lot from.

"The likes of Scholesy and Giggsy always have a picture in their heads about what they want to do with the ball and their first time passing is second to none. The way they go about training and matches means they are two of the best in the world to learn from. Being on the tour and among the first team has been fantastic. You are watching and learning from the experienced lads all the time and you try and hopefully put that into practice," he said.

Done Deal ! Vida To Sign Long Term Deal

Manchester United FC's Serbian international defender Nemanja Vidić has ended speculation about his future by agreeing a contract extension with the Old Trafford outfit.

Chief executive David Gill said: "I'm very pleased to confirm that we agreed terms with Nemanja three or four weeks ago on a new long-term deal. He's still away on holiday but the plan is that when he gets back the papers will be signed. It's great news for Manchester United and great news for Nemanja and the fans."

The 28-year-old centre-back, whose existing deal was due to expire in 2012, has won the UEFA Champions League and three English titles since joining United in 2006. Signed from PFC CSKA Moskva, the former FK Crvena Zvezda player has gone on to make 126 Premier League appearances. Sir Alex Ferguson's men will take part in Europe's premier club competition again this season, entering at the group stage.

Kei Kamara scored one goal and set up another to give the Kansas City Wizards a 2-1 victory over Manchester United in an international football friendly on Sunday.

Kamara's through ball set up Davy Arnaud in the 11th minute to give the Wizards the lead.

United's Dimitar Berbatov equalized on a penalty kick in the 41st minute after Wizards defender Jimmy Conrad was given a red card after a sliding tackle on Berbatov.

But Kamara fired the winner for the 10-man Wizards in the 42nd minute, heading home a corner kick just under the crossbar.

A crowd of 52,342 watched in the first event at Arrowhead Stadium since a 325 million-dollar renovation, although Manchester United lacked such star players as Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and Park Ji-Sung.

United will next face the Major League Soccer All-Stars in Houston on Wednesday.

RIO OUT FOR A MONTH

Rio Ferdinand has been ruled out for a further six weeks as the 31 year old continues his recovery from the knee ligament injury that kept him out of England’s World Cup campaign .

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: “Rio should be six weeks, I think. It was a ligament injury after all.”

Ferdinand was set to return for United’s opening game with Newcastle, but the England captain will now miss the first month of the new Premier League season. It’s a blow to both United and Rio himself. However Sir Alex has the option of calling on quality replacements. Jonny Evans played over half of United’s games last season and is a more than an able replacement. John O’shea, Wes Brown and 20 year old new signing Chris Smalling are also available to play if called upon.

Manchester United ran out 5-2 winners against the MLS All Stars in Houston. The 70,000 strong crowd in the Reliance stadium were treated to a 7-goal thriller, which included goals by Kiko Macheda, Tom Cleverley, Darron Gibson, as well as United new boy Javier Hernandez.

Cleverley’s goal and Chicharito’s delicate lob were probably the pick of the bunch.

Hernandez received a rousing reception when he came on as a substitute and showed good movement, intelligence, pace and touch to score on his debut much to the delight of the fans in the stadium.

Tom Cleverley will have done his chances of first team football a world of good with a good display capped by a clever goal, dinking the ball over a defender before sweeping the ball into the corner of the net. Fergie will have a tough decision to make as to whether he should send Cleverley out on loan or integrate him into the first team, keeping him closer to home where his progress can be monitored better.

Javier Hernandez Scores vs. United: The Red Devils Fall Short To Chivas


Manchester United landed in Mexico with great expectations and a roaring welcome for their new signing Javier Hernandez. The opening goal in the match came from the boot of Hernandez as he started for Chivas (Club Deportivo Guadalajara).

Chicharito as he is called played the first 45 minutes for his former club, and a golden start as he bagged the opened in the 8' Minute.

The other scorers on the night where Chris Smalling who scored his first goal for the club and the second for United came from Nani.

Chivas was to quick at time for United, and at the break Chicharito changed over to United, due to fitness and World Cup fatigue Sir Alex only allowed him 15minutes before taking him off.

Nevertheless Chivas went on to win the match by three goals to two, but many positive could be taken out of the encounter.

So while the "Mexican" hero might have been on the loosing side at the end of the game, Sir Alex has seen something really special in him even comparing him to the likes of former Old Trafford legend.

"Chicharito has done really well," said Sir Alex. "The players have all remarked how good he is and what a great finisher he is—I think there are similarities between him and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer."

The squad will now return to Manchester, and prepare for the match against Airtricity League XI in Dublin on Wednesday, 4th August.

A number of World Cup representative are part of the squad due to play in Dublin, Wayne Rooney; Michael Carrick, Ji Sung Park and Nemanja Vidic. Also Antonio Valencia whose returning from an injury has been included.

United will then face Chelsea in the Community Shield match on August 8th at Wembley.

Anderson In Serious Car Crash


http://www.united-latest.com/uploads/1/9/5/6/1956984/9076273.png?505


Manchester United midfielder Anderson has been pulled unconscious from the wreckage of a burning car moments before it exploded, according to reports.The 22-year-old is said to have spent several hours in hospital after the crash on a rural road in in the Geres area of Braga, Portugal.

Witnesses said the Premier League star owed his life to being pulled "lifeless" from the vehicle shortly before it went up in flames.

The Guardian, quoting local reports, said Anderson had spent the night at the Sardinha Biba nightclub before leaving in a £125,000 Audi R8.

The crash is believed to have happened at 7am when the car came off the road and hit the wall of a farm before flying into a field.

The car had just two seats but Anderson had two companions - a friend, named Victor, and a young Brazilian woman.

It was unclear who had been behind the wheel.All three were treated for concussion, whiplash and shock and discharged from hospital later in the morning, reports said.

The woman is believed to have needed the most treatment after the crash, which is being investigated by police.

Portuguese press reported Anderson's agency, Gestifute, said he was returning to Manchester United to continue his rehabilitation.

Skysports.com understands Manchester United have agreed to loan out Danny Welbeck to Sunderland.

The Black Cats made an enquiry about taking the highly-rated striker on a season-long spell at the Stadium of Light.

Welbeck, who is highly-regarded at Old Trafford, enjoyed a stint at Preston last season and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has now given the green light for the player to move to Wearside.

With the likes of Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen and new signing Javier Hernandez ahead of him in the pecking order Ferguson is happy to let Welbeck leave on a tempoary basis.


Also Tom Cleverley has been loaned to Wigan. These youngsters will be back next season with loads of premiership experience.

United Welcomes Bebe.

http://i33.tinypic.com/2nanvhe.jpg

Manchester United is pleased to announce it has reached agreement with Portuguese club Vitoria de Guimaraes for the purchase of 20-year-old striker Tiago Manuel Dias Correia (better known as “Bebe”) for an undisclosed fee, subject to a successful medical in Manchester later this week.

http://i35.tinypic.com/30w56jc.jpg

http://i33.tinypic.com/n6s37t.jpg



Personal terms have been agreed with the Cacém-born (Portugal) forward.United have paid the buyout clause to release Bebe – who was raised in an orphanage after spending part of his childhood on the streets and has represented Portugal in the homeless World Cup – from his five-year contract at Guimarães only five weeks after he joined the club from Estrala da Amadora in the Portuguese third division.

He has been recommended to Sir Alex Ferguson by his former assistant, Carlos Queiroz, the Portugal national coach, and a deal has been rushed through for Bebe to become the third signing of the summer at Old Trafford. It takes the club’s spending to around £25m following the arrival of Chris Smalling from Fulham and Javier Hernández from Chivas de Guadalajara, with Ferguson retaining a strong interest in Mesut Ozil, the Germany international.

Bebe is described as a fast, technically gifted striker, right-footed and strong in the air, measuring 6ft 2ins. He has shown his potential with several goals in pre-season but his signing still represents a major surprise given Ferguson’s recent insistence that he did not want to add to his squad and the player’s low profile in Portuguese football.

Queiroz has convinced Ferguson that he may have unearthed a future gem and Bebe will provide competition for Wayne Rooney, Hernández, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen and Federico Macheda, with Mame Biram Diouf having joined Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan and Daniel Welbeck on his way to Sunderland.

Giggs-I want to coach United

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has revealed his interest in managing United or Wales after he hangs up his playing boots.

Giggs has already started taking coaching lessons as he eyes following former United players Steve Bruce, Mark Hughes, Roy Keane and Bryan Robson in their transition from football players to managers.

Quoted in the News of the World, he said: "My aim would be to manage either Manchester United or Wales."

He continued: "I don't think I'll know whether I'll cope with the aggravation until I've finished playing and say 'what do I do now?'

"Football is such a massive part of my life and to just stop in your late 30s and do nothing is tough. Even though there is so much stress involved, I think a lot of players become managers and really enjoy it.

"I think [Ipswich Town manager] Roy Keane really enjoys it."

The 36-year-old winger has won every major club honor in his 20 year-service at Old Trafford.

VERGARA REGRETS HERNANDEZ SALE

Chivas president Jorge Vergara wishes he had held onto Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez until the end of his side's Copa Libertadores campaign.

Hernandez left Chivas to join United before the World Cup and immediately impressed for Sir Alex Ferguson's side in pre-season.

The 22-year-old scored in the recent Community Shield win over Chelsea and made a late cameo in United's 3-0 victory over Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday.

However, the Mexico striker's move to Old Trafford means he has missed out on the chance to scoop Latin American football's top club prize.

Chivas face Brazilian outfit Internacional in the second leg of the Copa Libertadores final in the early hours of Thursday morning and the Mexican side have a mountain to climb after losing the first leg 2-1 in Guadalajara.

"It won't be easy, but the team are convinced they can turn it around," the Chivas boss told Marca.

Internacional midfielder Sandro signed for Tottenham earlier this year, but the Brazilians insisted the player remained until the end of their Libertadores campaign.

And Vergara now wishes he had negotiated a similar deal for Hernandez.

"I am certain he would have made an important contribution against Internacional;

maybe our mistake was not having kept Javier at Chivas until the final," Vergara added.

Fergie Could Face Punishment For BBC Snub

Sir Alex Ferguson could face punishment from the Premier League after the Manchester United manager maintained his stance of not giving interviews to the BBC.

Ferguson was expected to end his six-year boycott of speaking to the British television network when United played at Fulham on Sunday.

The Scot has come under pressure from the Premier League and League Managers' Association to change his stance, which he first took after a BBC programme investigated the business activities of his son Jason, who then worked as a football agent.

But Ferguson has opted to continue his current position, with assistant Michael Phelan made available to provide comments instead should the BBC request it.

That is a breach of the Premier League and a statement from the organisation hinted action could be taken.

"The Premier League is disappointed that the BBC and Manchester United have, as yet, been unable to resolve the issue of Sir Alex Ferguson providing post-match interviews," the statement read.

"We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation and offer any help deemed necessary by either party to try and help remedy the situation.

"However, this is a breach of Premier League rules and the board will consider the appropriate course of action at their next meeting scheduled for late September."

Since Usain Bolt gained world-wide fame for being ridiculously fast at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he's been able to mix in visits to his favorite club, Manchester United, his other favorite club, Real Madrid, and more between running ridiculously fast. In the past, he's talked about playing as a "left-sided defensive midfielder" when he was in high school, but now he's seriously talking about his future as a footballer and not just his past.

Says the 24-year-old in his autobiography:

"Ideally, if I was to play football, I'd sign for my favorite team -- Manchester United. People say it's not realistic but nobody has seen me play so you never know. If Alex Ferguson saw me in one of those charity matches he might think I could replace Ryan Giggs."

You might laugh at that last sentence, but considering Sir Alex just bought a player for £7 million sight unseen, picking the next Ryan Giggs out of a charity match could be possible.

[Photos: See more of the Jamaican speedster]

But according to the Guardian's Simon Hattenstone, Bolt isn't just spouting off to sell books:

I ask about his ambitions. Ultimately, he says, he'd love to make a go of playing football professionally. He's being deadly serious. One of the perks of being Usain Bolt is that sporting stars love to meet him, so whenever he's travelling and there's time, he tries to train with a top football team. Last year it was Manchester United, a few days ago it was Bayern Munich. He's still carrying a copy of the French sporting newspaper L'Equipe, which features a spread on his football skills and praise from Bayern manager Louis van Gaal. He shows me a photo of himself with his arm wrapped round the dwarfed 6ft German forward Miroslav Klose. "If I keep myself in shape, I can definitely play football at a high level," he says.

Presumptuous? Yes. Impossible? Maybe not. His speed and celebrity would certainly get him a trial somewhere -- whether he has any skills on the ball or not.

All this will have to wait until at least after the 2012 Olympics, though. At which point Ryan Giggs will probably still be playing and Bolt will probably still be carrying around that copy of L'Equipe.

Javier Hernandez has pledged his future to the club, claiming he wants to stick around for a long time a lift a lot of trophies.

“We were very happy with the result,” said Hernandez. “We know about Stoke’s style and are delighted. I’m working a lot because I want to stay here a long time and win a lot of tournaments.”

His goal was scored in an unusual style, particularly considering his height, as he headed the ball using the back of his head.

“I jumped and saw the ball behind me and tried to head it towards the goal,” he added. “I don’t remember doing it in training. It’s a good goal but the most important thing is the result. Here there are no heroes, it is about the team. My team-mates trust in me and all the staff too. It’s an unbelievable opportunity for me to play with the biggest team in the world.”

Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour has revealed he could be ready to take the next step in his career amid interest from Manchester United.

Belgium international Defour, 22, is one of the most highly-rated young talents in his homeland and news emerged of United's interest when Sir Alex Ferguson sent the player a letter after he suffered a broken foot late last year.

Defour has now recovered his fitness and reports of a switch to the Premier League are rife, with Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson having scouted the player in recent weeks, and he has suggested he could now be ready to move on.

"I know that Manchester United are monitoring me, but there hasn't been any contact," Defour told Belgian TV programme Extra Time. "I've been sidelined for quite a while due to the injury, but I'm playing at a high level again.

"If everything goes well and I continue playing as I am, there is a better chance of me leaving than there was at the start of the season.

"I've had the opportunity to leave Standard on a couple of occasions, but I loved the club too much to leave. However, I'm 22 years old now and I also have to think about myself. There comes a time when you just have to make the next step in your career, regardless of your feeling for the club."

On his injury, he added: "The pain is much less severe than it was at the beginning of the season. The pain will eventually disappear altogether, but I have to do my exercises every day and work hard."

Defour's agent, Paul Stefani, said recently that a January move is a "possibility".

Manchester United 3 - 2 Wolverhampton ( Carling Cup)

Bebe (56)
Park (70)
Hernandez (90)

Elokobi (60)
Foley (76)



Javier Hernandez climbed off the bench to score a brilliant goal as Manchester United claimed a 3-2 win over Wolves in the fourth round of the Carling Cup.

On two occasions Wolves pegged United back, with George Elokobi and Kevin Foley cancelling out strikes from debutant Bebe and Park Ji Sung, but the visitors were undone by the brilliance of Hernandez.


United line up- Amos,Fabio,Brown,Smalling,Evans,Gibson,Park,Oberta n,Bebe,Obertan,Macheda.
Bebe, the player famously signed by Sir Alex Ferguson without the Scot having seen him play, was handed his full debut and justified his place with a goal. He looked a little ungainly at times as United disappointed in the first half, but they were far more focused after the restart and Federico Macheda went close with a curling effort and Darron Gibson drilled a free kick straight at Wayne Hennessey.

Wolves were not without their chances and Sylvain Ebanks-Blake drilled a shot at Ben Amos, but United broke in rapid fashion and Bebe's cross-shot looped up off Elokobi and over the line.

Wolves produced an impressive response and were level on the hour as Elokobi atoned for his part in United's goal by climbing high and powering a header from six yards past Amos.

Stephen Hunt and Steven Fletcher passed up presentable chances for Wolves and they were made to pay on 70 minutes as Park Ji-sung drove into the box before curling a left-foot shot beyond Hennessey.

Once again Wolves responded, as Foley stroked home following Fletcher's cheeky backheel. But Ferguson turned to Hernandez and he added another goal to his growing scrapbook when gliding through tackles and powering his shot through Hennessey.

Pep Guardiola Likely To Suceed SAF ?

Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola has emerged as the favorite to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson when the Scot steps down at Manchester United.

The Spanish media suggested Ferguson recommended Guardiola for the United board because of his style of play.

Guardiola, 39, still has not extended his contact which is due to expire next summer and he is believed to have a negative relationship with the Catalan club's president Sandro Rossell.

Guardiola's agent Jose Maria Orobigt has confirmed that his client has received an offer from a top European club, which is believed to be United.

Other candidates for the job include Real Madrid manager José Mourinho, former Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill and Everton manager David Moyes.

Manchester United 2-0 Tottenham Hotspurs

http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/49720000/jpg/_49720702_nani466.jpg

Nani scored a controversial second goal as Manchester United continued their fine record against Tottenham.

Tottenham keeper Heurelho Gomes rolled the ball out for a free-kick after Nani had clearly handled the ball but the United player had not been penalised.

Nani then struck the ball into an empty net, much to the Spurs players' fury.

Nemanja Vidic had earlier headed home a free-kick from Nani, who also hit the woodwork, as United extended their unbeaten run against Spurs to 26 games.

Tottenham's last win at Old Trafford remains the 1-0 victory in December 1989, when Gary Lineker struck the winner.

Spurs, who stay fifth in the table but are now 10 points behind leaders Chelsea, have not kept a clean sheet in the league since the opening day of the season.

And, even more worryingly, the influential Rafael Van der Vaart limped off with a tight hamstring in the latter stages.

But there was plenty to encourage manager Harry Redknapp as he tries to mould a team capable of challenging for the title.

Tottenham did play plenty of attractive football - with Van der Vaart striking the woodwork - and more than matched United for long periods of the contest.

The home team have been wasteful at times this season, dropping six points from winning positions, including a 2-2 draw against West Brom after leading 2-0.

But after Nani's controversial goal was allowed to stand by referee Mark Clattenburg in the final minutes, United were able to close out the game with relative ease and remain third in the table, five points behind Chelsea.

United might have taken the lead inside two minutes when a crisp long-range strike from Ji-Sung Park smashed into the base of the post with Gomes well beaten.

Tottenham responded and Van der Vaart, who frequently dropped deep and found space in dangerous areas, crashed his thunderous left-foot strike against the United woodwork after eight minutes.

Edwin van der Sar turned 40 on Friday but there was nothing wrong with his reflexes as he stopped a powerful strike from Luka Modric, while Van der Vaart missed with another effort from distance.

Robbie Keane made his second Premier League start of the season for Spurs as Peter Crouch dropped to the bench, and with Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon out wide, the visiting team were extremely mobile across their front line.

However, for all their attractive attacking football, Tottenham often lacked a killer final ball, while United did occasionally prise open their opponents' defence.

Park shot wide after cutting inside, Rafael da Silva ended a surging run with a poor finish, and Gomes kept out a low strike from former Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov, who has now gone six games without scoring.

But for all that there was to admire from both sides, the opening goal came via Vidic's thudding header after Spurs completely failed to pick up the defender as Nani swung in a free-kick from a wide area.

Bale had a relatively quiet match but did catch the eye with one electric run into the United area 10 minutes after the restart before shooting narrowly wide.

Spurs continued to create some promising positions but it was becoming increasingly evident that they were missing the extra option that a target man would provide, and Roman Pavlyuchenko replaced Keane after 61 minutes.

The substitute struck the side netting from 20 yards and Van der Sar denied Van der Vaart as the London side continued to press.

Javier Hernandez went close for United, while Nani thought he should have been awarded a penalty seconds before he scored his controversial goal.

The Portugal international fell in the box and appealed for a spot-kick but, despite clearly handling the ball as he went down, he was not penalised by Clattenburg.

Gomes obviously thought differently and rolled the ball out as though his team had been given a free-kick, and he was punished when Nani slotted the ball home as the bewildered Spurs keeper looked on.

Arguments ensued, first between the United players and the assistant referee when it appeared he had ruled out the goal, and then between the Tottenham players and Clattenburg when the referee overruled his colleague.

Play eventually resumed, but with only six minutes remaining there was too little time for Tottenham to recover a two-goal deficit.

Solskjaer makes Molde move

http://img.skysports.com/10/11/218x298/OleGunnarSolskjaerManUtd_2524946.jpg

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as the new manager of Molde after leaving his role as reserve-team boss at Manchester United.

The move back to his native Norway ends Solskjaer's 14-year spell at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer, who will take charge of Molde in January, replaces former Manchester Citystriker Uwe Rosler at the Norwegian outfit.

The 37-year-old's time at Old Trafford will forever be remembered for the

dramatic injury-time winner in the 1999 Champions League final against

Bayern Munich.
It was one of 126 goals in 366 appearances for United following his bargain £1.5million arrival from Molde in 1996.

After his playing career was ended by a persistent knee injury in 2007, Solskjaer was offered the chance to become reserve-team boss as part of a

coaching shake-up that saw the Norwegian work alongside Warren Joyce.
Ferguson was sad to see Solskjaer leave the club, but paid tribute to his impact at Old Trafford.

"Ole has had a good period with our reserve team, which has given him a

foundation to start somewhere else," said Ferguson.

"He feels it is time he went back to Norway, which also helps his family

situation.

Fantastic servant

"He has been a fantastic servant to us and I am sure he will do well.
"He has worked with some really good young players in our reserve team and has contributed to their development.

"Once he gets experience of managing a club in its own right who knows where it will take him?

"Molde is a very progressive club in Norwegian football, so this is a good

start for him."

Ferguson admits he has yet to decide who will replace Solskjaer as reserve-team coach with reports linking Gary Neville as a possible replacement.

"I have no idea who takes over the reserves," added Ferguson. "We will just leave it at the moment."
