Reds will rotate on tour

Sir Alex Ferguson has pledged to give each of his 22-man squad a run-out during the DHL tour.

A number of fringe players have been included in the party and will be champing at the bit for a chance to represent the first team for the first time.

The manager has already revealed that Robbie Brady will play at left-back and Scott Wootton, Frederic Veseli and Tyler Blackett are options to partner captain Rio Ferdinand at the heart of the defence.

"We'll try and give them all a part of it," Sir Alex told MUTV. "I think that's very important. There's no point coming out on a 12-hour trip to South Africa and then over to China and back without them getting experience by playing in these games.

"I think, with Rio, we have young Scott Wootton with us and he can play centre-back. Frederic Veseli, the Swiss boy, can as well and Tyler, for instance, so it's not so bad.

"They're young and it's not a problem. That experience is vital to them to give some opportunities
