Sir Alex blasts sloppy United defence

Sir Alex Ferguson has ordered Manchester United to stop conceding soft goals if they want to win their title back.

Man United have got off to a slow start to the season, despite winning two out of their three games. They lost their opening game away at Everton and then had to come from behind to win in the next two games against Fulham and Southampton. 

After conceding 5 goals in their first three games, Sir Alex Ferguson has ordered them to stop conceding soft goals or face another trophyless season.

He said: “We are losing soft goals at the moment.

“Do we have to score three in every game to win? I don’t want to go down that road.

“We are going to address it, as we did last year, because defending is every bit as important as the goals we are scoring.

“There are goals in our team, there is no question about that. But the other end needs balancing out.”
