What the bosses say United Vs Latics

In the build up to the Manchester United Vs Wigan Athletic game at Old Trafford Vital Latics thought it would be good to see what the bosses, Sir Alex Ferguson and Steve Bruce have been saying:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'They are a privilege to manage at the moment. They have the bit between their teeth and are having a right good crack at it.

'I hope they can take it into tomorrow because we are going to need it. We are in for an absolutely unbelievably tough game but one which we are looking forward to.

'It is the one where you are going to get tested to the hilt. I've witnessed teams who have been beaten before they even go there because they show far too much respect.

'You just hope our boys can play to their maximum, enjoy themselves, take them on and make sure we don't leave anything in the dressing room.

'With the run we are on at the moment I hope it is the right time. I hope we go on to the biggest stage of all and show it is not a fluke Wigan are in the top 10.'

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson:

'The hard work has not been done just because we have beaten Chelsea. This is a harder one for us. It is one of our games in hand, and we have to win.
'People will expect us to reach the same level of performance as Sunday again. But I have looked at all the statistics, and Chelsea worked amazingly hard - which just shows the level we got to.

'We certainly hope to be top by Saturday night. That is our aim. But it will not be easy, because Wigan are on a fantastic run.

'They are a powerful team with a good balance of ages.'
