MANCHESTER BOSSES' PRAISE FOR WELSH PREMIER
MANCHESTER United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has a different view of the Welsh Premier from former Manchester City and Swansea has-been John Bond.
After watching Connah's Quay Nomads make a creditable 2-2 draw with a United XI, Sir Alex said he was impressed with the Nomads' set-up and pleased the home side had given his up and coming stars a good game.
He stressed that the WP has made great strides in just 10 years and added his belief that all clubs in the league should make strenuous efforts to qualify for European competition to increase both profile and potential.
Manchester City boss Kevin Keegan was also full of praise for his club's UEFA Cup rivals TNS.
"I have much respect for our opposition who are from the fastest developing European league", said the ex-England boss.
"They are a tough team to break down, full of spirit, and fully professional."
Keegan was also keen to distance himself and Manchester City from Bond's comments.
"John Bond served well for both Swansea and here, yet his current opinions are as old as dinosaur droppings, and equally as stench-ridden.
" To make a comment about a professional side like that, coming from a pro background like this, is unjustifiable.
"Myself, and Manchester City are in no way connected to John Bond's comments. Just like James Bond, his opinions are extinct."
