LONDON - Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been given 100 million pounds to strengthen the squad.
The 4-0 humiliating loss to West Ham in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night showed the lack of depth at Manchester United.
Ferguson’s windfall came after he told United’s board that he needed to spend big.
The huge money will surprise many of the fans who have opposed the Glazers’ regime since they bought the club in 2005 and lumbered it with 705 million pounds of debt.
Fergie needs some big players to replace Old Trafford legends Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, who are both probably in their last season, The Sun reports.
He also wants another top-class striker.
While the Red Devils were unbeaten this season until the hammering on Tuesday, they had drawn seven of their 15 Premier League games and are top almost by default. (ANI)
