Man Utd boss Ferguson pleased Smalling, Jones now back

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is happy with his defensive options.

Ferguson is content enough that with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones recovered from injury, he again has defensive strength in depth.

Smalling and Jones are set to join Nemanja Vidic on Wednesday against Cluj, while Rafael da Silva, Rio Ferdinand and Jonny Evans take a night off.

Fergie said: "We have options at the back once more. Smalling has come back really well. He's such a big, quick, determined lad."
