Pallister reminds Man Utd fans of past struggles

Gary Pallister has reminded Manchester United fans of the tough times they experienced in the past.

Pally was part of Sir Alex Ferguson's first great team at United.

"I remember my first year at Manchester United," said Pallister.

"At one stage we were a defeat away from going into the relegation zone.

"We got so much stick for being the size of club we were and not winning the championship for 26 years.

"The senior professionals, Bryan Robson and Mal Donaghy, told the young lads to keep doing their jobs and it would come right.

"Ryan Giggs was one of those young lads then. Now he will be imparting that same experience to people like Adnan Januzaj, Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley."
