Sepp Blatter confirms he has Manchester United’s backing on new proposal! They’re agreeing on something?!

Sir Alex Ferguson an Sepp Blatter have never been the closest of friends after the FIFA President made some wonderful remarks comparing football players with slaves. But it appears both sides are letting go of the issue and are moving forward with the new 6+5 proposal together. Really?!? Sepp and Sir Alex are agreeing on something?!

Fifa president Sepp Blatter claims Manchester United boss Sir Alex Fergsuon backs his six-plus-five plan to limit the number of foreign players in a team. (Times)

I find this very hard to believe, although Sir Alex has been a big supporter of keeping top level English talent in the Premier League for some time now. It just seems strange to see the two sides coming to to the middle to agree on something.
