Southgate Gets Backing From Sir Alex!

Last updated : 02 May 2009 By Boro Mad
Sir Alex Ferguson: "Steve Gibson has the courage to stick with a younger manager and he won't change.

"There is no doubt about his future. The unfortunate thing in this industry is when a team has three or four bad results, the jungle drums start beating.

"But I think Gareth has a chairman who will give him longer than most.

"It's hard for Gareth.

"He is a young man who has progressed and is trying to change the club of his by bringing in young players.

"That is admirable and very ambitious of him. I am sure his chairman will recognise that."
