Man Utd’s Ferguson: Replays should not be scrapped

Fergie said: “Arsene is speaking for teams like ourselves, who are committed to Europe.

“It is a fair point but I don’t think it could apply to everyone. You cannot just take replays away. For some clubs it is part of their whole existence.

“Reading have come here today and got a draw that takes us back to their place. That is great for them.”
