Simpson Confident Of Long Term United Future

Simpson Confident Of Long Term United Future

Blackburn Rovers season long loan signing Danny Simpson remains confident of having a future at parent club Manchester United for many years to come.

With little chance of a breakthrough into the United first team this season, Rovers took Danny on loan and so far has looked mature and composed in the right back spot.

However, even though Simpson is enjoying his time at Ewood, he still sees his future at United.

Danny told the Manchester Evening News: 'I saw Rafael's debut against Aalborg on TV and he played really well. But I never looked on it as blocking my way back.

'It's good to see young lads getting a chance. That's what Man United is all about and you don't expect any different. Good luck to him.

'It can all come down to experience in the end and here at Blackburn I'm getting a lot of it in the Premier League every week now.

'If I play 20-30 matches in the Premier League it will make me a better player. I could go back to Old Trafford and the other younger lads then might go out on loan. You just never know. Things change week in week out.

'I don't think the new group of lads emerging shuts the door on the likes of myself. You never know what is around the corner in football.

'When you leave United it could be a case of out of sight out of mind. You might worry about that in the past, but not now.'

I am sure Paul Ince would love to keep him but I think Sir Alex will be keen to have him back.

Either way, as long as he carries on the way he has so far, we won't complain too much!
