Bordeaux striker David Bellion has hailed the spirit Sir Alex Ferguson has created at Manchester United.

"The players are great and have a fantastic state of mind. What surprised me the most was the fact that Giggs or Keane, who are models for their state of mind, are the simplest persons in the world!
"Sir Alex Ferguson always put me in the best conditions before the matches, which permitted me to score goals.
"That kind of things makes the strength of the great ones, because they have a group of 25 internationals to manage.
"He played guys like Giggs - one of my heroes - then put him on the bench and played him again the game after. But everybody accepted it! At other clubs, that can explode.
"What was good is the fact that he always talked to us even if we did not play well. He motivated us and encouraged us. So we could express our potential, and I feel the same with my new coach."
