Ferguson is warming to Doha camp

The Manchester United coach is delighted to have swapped the sleet and snow for sun and ideal temperatures for their warm weather camp in the winter break.

Sir Alex Ferguson, the Manchester United manager, has heaped praise on the facilities at Doha's Aspire Academy as his team spend several days in the Gulf. The Premier League champions have been in Qatar since Sunday for a warm-weather training camp, as they take a break from the English winter, which has been the most severe in 30 years. And Ferguson is delighted to have swapped the sleet and snow for sun and temperatures of 24ºC.

"I had heard a lot about the fantastic facilities at Aspire from my coaching staff," he said. "With the weather being so good at this time of the year in Qatar, it was the perfect opportunity to test them out. "The welcome we have received has been superb and we have already done an excellent training session that just would not have been possible in the conditions in the UK." United return to England on Thursday in preparation for their Premier League encounter with Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Darren Fletcher will miss that game after he was sent-off in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Birmingham and said yesterday that he was extremely frustrated to be sent off after collecting two yellow cards. "Saturday was disappointing because I was constantly being fouled and when I said something the ref said to me, 'It is a man's game'," said the Scotland midfielder. "So I went in hard and he books me. Then he booked me again for nothing really.

"You don't want to miss games for any reason and to miss one for suspension disrupts things for me. "But someone coming in and doing well could mean I can't get back into the side and that is the risk." @Email:akunawicz@thenational.ae
