Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Scott Wootton has a chance of making it at Old Trafford.

Fergie nicked Wootton away from Liverpool while he was with the Reds Academy.

Ferguson said: "I like him. He is a good user of the ball, reads the game well. He lacks an inch in the air that Jonny Evans and Ferdinand have, but Steve Bruce wasn't the tallest. I hope Michael Carrick won't be playing more matches at the back because that would mean we're struggling!"
