Man Utd boss Ferguson: No need to buy in January

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says he won't need to buy in January because many of his injured senior players will be available by then.

Ferguson said: "We won't be strengthening in January, I can absolutely assure everyone of that.

"We brought some good players into the club during the summer and we have also added youngsters like Gerard Pique and Danny Simpson to our squad.

"We've had a few injuries in the early weeks of the season, but the squad has proved that we can cope with that. They have all done terrifically well.

"It has been a blessing that the injuries came at the start of the season rather than the end of it and by the turn of the year we will have the likes of Ji-sung Park, Gary Neville, Owen Hargreaves and Michael Carrick back.

"Last season we just couldn't make that step up to the Champions League Final because we ran out of legs. With the squad we've got now I don't think the same thing will happen."
