Sir Alex Ferguson says Fulham’s success in Basel is an indication of how far the club’s come in a short space of time – and that the transformation’s down to one man: Roy Hodgson.

The Manchester United manager believes straightforward games against Fulham are a thing of the past and hopes to avoid tasting defeat at Craven Cottage for the second successive year.

We lost to them last year, and analysing that game was quite revealing for us. And who’d have thought Fulham could play in Europe with five changes and win? It’d a remarkable turnaround since Roy’s gone there and a very difficult game for anyone.
Ferguson will wait as long as possible before deciding whether to include Nemanja Vidic tomorrow, but is confident the Serbian defender should be fit to play.
We’re waiting on Nemanja Vidic. Hopefully he’ll be okay for tomorrow but he needs to train today.
