United would oppose any dispensation request, as they did with Glenn Roeder and Gareth Southgate.

I think Utd need to keep their noses out, have they nothing better to do then release stupid press statements? I wouldnt mind, but its not like Alex Ferguson has a UEFA Pro license anyway, double standards imho.
