Man Utd legend Yorke: Fergie knows how to manage striker options

Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke says Sir Alex Ferguson knows how to handle his strikers this weekend.

Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke says Sir Alex Ferguson knows how to handle his strikers this weekend.

Ferguson has the unenviable task of choosing between Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez this Easter weekend as the Reds face Sunderland on Saturday in the Barclays Premier League before tackling Chelsea in the FA Cup just 48 hours later.

“Well this is what the manger gets paid the big bucks for - to make these types of calls,” Yorke told ManUtd.com. “Thankfully, he gets it right more times than wrong. I’m sure he will work it out because he has a good way of doing it.

“That was evident against Chelsea when he brought Rooney and Chicharito back into the attack and they both scored. They have a good record against this team. Some players naturally love to score against certain teams and the manager does his homework."
