Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is happy to see two of his former players succeeding at Norwich City.

Both Anthony Pilkington and David Fox tested United last season.

Ferguson recalled last season's clash at Carrow Road: "Anthony Pilkington was wide left that day – he was here as a kid, as was David Fox of course. I remember David well but I don’t remember Pilkington, he was in the academy.

"David Fox was a professional here for a couple of years, he was a great pro. He’s a great footballer with a good family background – his father Peter was a goalkeeper at Stoke City.
