Alex Ferguson has said that Alex McLeish can succeed at Aston Villa despite the fans. McLeish quit St Andrew's on Sunday and the prospect of him moving across the city has enraged some Villa fans.
"At the end of the day, what will count is this - can he do the job for Villa?" said Ferguson.
"It doesn't matter whether there are 50 against him, 500 against him or five against him because the experience and the ability he has got, believe me, he will prove that he can do the job.
"I've known him for a long time and I know his abilities. I know how conscientious he is.
