Ferguson today admitted that drawing against the Kaiser Chiefs was a disappointing result but fully expected results to improve as fitness improved.
"We hope to get the better of the next teams on our pre season tour. We expect a touch match up against Franz Ferdinand and Girls Aloud but by the time we face Dizzee Rascal we expect to be around match fit, though if he recruits Calvin Harris to play in goal it may prove to be a sterner test than first thought.
"We have a few more fixtures during this tour and as fitness levels improve we should see an improvement in results."
Although Wayne Rooney's fitness is giving cause for concern, Ferguson admitted "It is costing a lot in fuel to shift him around but by the time we fly back he should be dipping under 20 stone"
