Medo Kamara: Came through a tough derby baptism against Blackburn

The 25-year-old former Partizan Belgrade man made his first start since joining Wanderers on January transfer deadline day and Freedman was impressed with his display alongside Jay Spearing at the heart of midfield.

"We knew Blackburn would come with a game plan and play very deep and sit in there, so we had to be patient and I though Spearing and him looked a good partnership in there."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
