Manchester United’s priority this season has always lifting lifting the Barclays Premier League once again, admits Sir Alex Ferguson.
Manchester United go into the Manchester Derby 15-points clear at the top of the Premier League, which is now the only trophy-wear that seems to be heading to the red side of Manchester this term.
Sir Alex Ferguson, who was speaking ahead of tomorrow’s derby match with Manchester City at Old Trafford, insists that the league was always number one on the list this season.
Speaking with MUTV, Sir Alex said:
“I was asked about only winning one trophy. I think that’s a strange question in the context of the kind of competition we have as we’re up against teams from London – Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea – plus Liverpool and Everton,”
“They’re massive challenges every year [for both Manchester clubs]. For every one of those teams, the supporters want to win one trophy. I think we can win the one that really does matter to the fans in particular.
“Yes, I’d love to win the Champions League again but I’d say that we were knocked out in circumstances everyone is still talking about.
“The disappointment at being knocked out by Chelsea is obvious but the league form has been fantastically consistent.”
