Fergie happy to farm Manucho out to Greeks

February 1, 2008

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Manucho will spend the remainder of the season on loan at Panathinaikos.

The 24-year-old Angola striker will join the Greek club after the African Nations Cup.

Ferguson said: 'We have farmed him out to Panathinaikos for the rest of the season as he will get games there.

'They have a Portuguese coach (Jose Peseiro) and as Manucho speaks Portuguese, it is comfortable for him. Then we will apply for a work permit in the summer.'
