Yeovil boss Way reveals Fergie help ahead of Man Utd clash

Yeovil Town boss Darren Way is convinced they can pull off an FA Cup upset against Manchester United tonight.

And Way reveals he would do so with Sir Alex Ferguson's support.

Manchester United have been very supportive to me throughout my career, certainly at my lowest point," said Way.

“A big thanks goes to Sir Alex. He is a legend and United just ooze class.

“They certainly showed class to me and without them, perhaps I wouldn't be sat here now because they made my life a lot easier for me and my family.

“Sir Alex could obviously understand my story. When I asked him, 'Would you do this for me?' and send a team to Yeovil he said 'Yes' just two weeks later. I wasn't ­expecting that so quickly.

“I speak to him whenever I get a problem. 'Don't look for trouble, trouble will come to your door.' That is the best advice he has given me and every day that comes into play. 'Find a solution,' he says. 'And avoid all distractions.'"
