Il manager del Man Utd si è esposto in prima persona per dfendere la famiglia Glazer, contestatissima proprietaria del club ed oggtto di feroci strali da parte della tifoseria. Titolari dei "Red Devils" dal 2005, gli americani sono invisi ai fans che hanno addirittura adottato i coloro gialloverdi per rendere visibile la loro critica alla proprietà. Dopo essere stata sconfitta dal Brasile in amichevole, la selezione olimpica di calcio britannica non è stata risparmiata da un certo scetticismo che,però, non ha intaccato la serenità del selezionatore Pearce certo di imminenti miglioramenti sino dalla prima uscita ufficiale ormai incombente.
Sir Alex Ferguson defends Manchester United owners
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has defended the club owners' transfer policy as well as his own.
The Glazer family bought United in 2005, but have been unpopular with fans because of concerns over debt levels, and have struggled to match their rivals spending power as a result.
"I am comfortable with the Glazers. They have been great," said Ferguson.
"They have always backed me whenever I have asked them. I have never faced any opposition."
Factions of United supporters have persistently protested against their ownership , which has seen the club rack up huge debts of £423m, but Ferguson has refused to critcise the Glazers financing of the club.
"They have always been as sensible as they can be in terms of financing the club," added Ferguson
"They have to invest in the team to maintain the value of their asset.
"I think there are a whole lot of factions at United that think they own the club. They will always be contentious about whoever owns the club, and that's the way it's always been.
"When the Glazers took over here there was dissatisfaction, so there have always been pockets of supporters who have their views. But I think the majority of real fans will look at it realistically and say it's not affecting the team. We've won four championships since they've been there and one European Cup."
The Scot also stood by the club's refusal to compete with the likes of Manchester City in the transfer market, believing that his policy of blooding young players is preferable.
Champions City have emerged as the dominant force in English football - thanks to backing from their wealthy Arabic owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan.
"We can play 18-year-olds because it's part of our history," he added.
"No other clubs can do that. City won't do it. They definitely won't play any young players who have come up through their system."
London 2012: Team GB will improve by Olympics - Pearce
Great Britain men's football coach Stuart Pearce says his side will improve for their opening game at the Olympics against Senegal after being soundly beaten by Brazil.
Sandro and Neymar scored in the first half to earn Brazil a 2-0 victory in the warm-up match at the Riverside.
"Next week is the most important one for us," Pearce told BBC Sport.
"Brazil are a very good side and well ahead of us in terms of games together and fitness."
Pearce's team face Senegal at Old Trafford on Thursday before they play United Arab Emirates and Uruguay in Group A.
But they will need to improve if they are to make sure of their passage to the knockout stages of the competition, having registered only one shot on target against an experienced Brazilian team.
Team GB's fixtures
26 July: v Senegal at Old Trafford
29 July: v UAE at Wembley
1 Aug: v Uruguay at Millennium Stadium
"We played against one of the most outstanding Olympics sides and they are one of the teams to knock over in this tournament if you are going to win," Pearce added.
"We have to take positives; we passed well up until the final third but we gave a couple of sloppy goals away.
"We knew where we were fitness-wise and we need a bit of punch in the final third and maybe this will come with fitness. We will be ready next week, we aren't ready at this moment in time."
After a positive start by Team GB, Brazil took charge of the contest and once they opened up a 2-0 lead, appeared to reign in their attacking threat.
Despite the result, GB captain Ryan Giggs remains confident his team-mates will show their quality during the Games.
"We have only been together two weeks and we are getting better and better and we will improve as the tournament goes on," he said. "It was a good benchmark for us."
On the team's fitness the 38-year-old added: "It's a difficult balancing act because you want all 18 players to be fit... but you can't kill everybody in training.
"This game will bring us on and we have six days to get ready for Senegal. We have a lot of talent in the dressing room, everyone is comfortable on the ball and we will get better, I've seen it in training. It's disappointing to lose but we will take the positives out of it."
