Ex-Man Utd striker Webber: Not time for kids; they must earn it

Former Manchester United striker Danny Webber says it's not time for the kids.

Webber was asked whether it might be time to inject some youth into the XI, as soon as this Saturday when Norwich City visit M16.

"You've got to go with your strongest team," insisted ex-forward Webber to MUTV. "There's nothing wrong with the boys who have earned it and got to a position where they've earned a first-team opportunity, being on the bench or coming off the bench. If they've earned the right to be in the starting XI, then fine.

"But I don't think it's a case of throwing in anybody, just to give them games at the end of the season.

"The door [to the top four] is still open and while that's still there, you've got to go out with your best team and keep cohesion within the group to give us the best chance of finishing the season as strongly as possible."
