Darren Fletcher: ‘Do you like getting kicked?’

Great quotes by Darren Fletcher in the latest issue of United’s fanzine, United We Stand:

“I don’t want to sound big-headed but I’ve never come up against anyone who has torn me to shreds. The only time that’s happened has been in training against Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.

“I watch how good Lampard, Fabregas and Gerrard are but when we play them I think ‘Right, I’m going to see how good you really are!’ I’m going to get against you and see how you like it. And when you’ve not got the ball I’m still going to get about you and see how you like it.

“I’m going to ask you ‘Do you fancy it? Do you like getting kicked? Do you like the fact I am going to be at you for the whole 90 minutes?’

“As soon as you get the ball I am going to be in your face. You are not going to like it one bit. Are you ready for that because that’s what’s going to happen.”

“That’s what’s going to happen…” – that’s his new catchphrase, right there.

You have to admire Fletcher’s attitude. He is a player moulded in Fergie’s image, clearly.
