Pavel Pogrebnyak: I’d like to swap jerseys with Giggs and Scholes
Fulham ace Pavel Pogrebnyak spoke about his expectations ahead of his side’s Premier League fixture against champions Manchester United.
«We don’t want a third straight defeat, but we are playing at the Old Trafford, so it won’t be easy. But perhaps they will underestimate us? I don’t really believe that, though. United have a real chance of extending their lead after City’s draw this weekend. We have to stop their big players – Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez.»
«You beat the Red Devils as a Zenit player in the European Supercup. Do you have the recipe for defeating Man U?»
«Of course not, it was a long time ago, though I remember that game well. United always set the Premier League as their top priority, so we should make any connections here.»
«Would you swap jerseys with any of the opponents?»
«They have a lot of quality players, but of course Giggs and Scholes would be on top of that list. I’d like to chat with them and find out how they manage to maintain their fitness at their age. Maybe Ferguson is feeding them something special?» the Russian striker joked in an interview to Sovetsky sport.
