Man Utd vs Liverpool: Ferdinand out injured, Pique’ in


Sir Alex Ferguson has announced that Rio Ferdinand is a major doubt for the Super-Sunday match against Liverpool. The 1.92 metre centre-back is suffering from a back problem and was absent from the match against Bolton in midweek. Sir Alex has shown his strong belief in the young players coming up the ranks at Man Utd. Gerard Pique was given another chance to impress, playing alongside the Serbian Nemanja Vidic in the match against Bolton. Ferguson did not exclude the possibility of playing Pique against Liverpool, saying that he has “great confidence in the lad”.


Pique has proved that he has the potential to be a top defender in the future. This season, he was fielded twice in the Man Utd Champions League group stage. On the 7th November, he scored Manchester United’s first goal against Dynamo Kyiv. He scored again in Man Utd’s last group stage match against Roma on the 12th December. It is important that he repays the trust that Fergie is putting in him, and this he can do by performing exceptionally against Liverpool, if the boss decides to field him.
