FERGUSON TAKES MANCHESTER UNITED ON CARDIFF GETAWAY TRIP AHEAD OF MANCHESTER DERBY

Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson put his players through their paces in Cardiff to take them away from the intense spotlight of Manchester ahead of Monday's title-deciding derby at the Etihad Stadium.


United squad set off on Friday morning for a two-day stay at the Vale Resort, a golf and spa retreat in the Vale of Glamorgan and trained at Cardiff City's nearby training ground.


Ferguson organised a similar break at St Andrews before United's last Monday night game against Blackburn at the start of this month.

The Old Trafford boss felt some of his younger players were feeling the pressure and was delighted with the outcome of the break


After last weekend's 4-4 draw, Ferguson's side now a three-point lead going into the crunch clash with rivals City needing a win to keep the Barclays Premier League crown within their grasp.

The squad appeared to be in high spirits with striker Wayne Rooney acting as ball boy after the training session in south Wales, while defender Rio Ferdinand and winger Nani were both involved
