Fergie praise for Kasey

Posted on 22 September 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Sir Alex Ferguson said Kasey Keller had a 'fantastic game' and admitted that he was worried about United's missed chances as we managed to work our way into the game.

In-form Kasey produced a number of fine saves to deny the home side, most notably a wonderful effort to tip aside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's volley in the first half and reaction block with his feet to keep our Ruud Van Nistelrooy's close-range shot after the break.

In the end his and our makeshift defence's stubborn resistance was finally broken by Nistelrooy's clinical penalty.

The United boss reflected: "Kasey Keller had a fantastic game and it needed a penalty kick to beat him, so he can be well pleased with himself.

"I thought the performance was okay. As the game went on I was worrying about the missed chances and whether we were going to regret that because in the last 15 minutes Tottenham had a real go, Fabien Barthez had made a great cut out from a cross from the left-hand side and it was an important cut out because I think we might have lost a goal there.

"When you are only 1-0 up that's what can happen. We missed so many golden opportunities with one v ones against the goalkeeper that the scoreline was disappointing."
