Sir Alex Ferguson 'not unhappy' with seven strikers at Manchester United

Scot maintains he would have ample cover if some of his forwards fall prey to injury, but admits that he may have trouble ensuring all players get a run out
Sir Alex Ferguson insists that he is "not unhappy" having seven forwards at Manchester United.

The Red Devils will take on last season's FA Cup winners Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, with the victor taking away the Community Shield.

And for the game in London, the Scot has Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen, Federico Macheda, Danny Welbeck and Mame Birame Diouf available. Javier Hernandez is currently sidelined after suffering a concussion during the club's pre-season tour of USA.

"I am not unhappy with seven strikers. Some clubs would love to have seven," Sir Alex said, according to The Mail on Sunday.

"There is a difficulty in terms of managing the situation in the sense of the number of games they can get. But I've got those players, so I'll get on with it. And we'll compensate by making sure they train well. I expect them all to be here at the end of the transfer window.

"You might get an injury down the road. At the moment I've no intention of changing."
