Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has been quick to praise Sir Alex Ferguson for lifting the squad to hopefully, their 20th league title after last seasons final day disappointment.
United go into this weekend 12-points clear of rivals Manchester City as they travel to Stoke, needing 10-points from the final 7 games in the Premier League to be crowned champions once again.
Wayne Rooney told the Times of India:
“We have regular team meetings and he speaks to a lot of players individually too. And his team-talks are brilliant. They really inspire you. It doesn’t matter that we might be a few points clear, he never lets you feel like that before a match because he wants us to keep going.
“The important thing is to go out and play each game with a positive attitude. We have to stay focused. We have to make sure we keep doing our job and keep our concentration.”
“It’s a great position to be in but nothing is over yet. We’ve just kept plugging away and have been getting results and thankfully the other teams have dropped points. But we have to keep things going, keep pushing on and working hard to make sure that gap stays as big as possible. It’s going to be a big few weeks for us now.
“Of course, to lose the league in the last second last season was bad. But when you are at a club like United, you have to be full of motivation and desire to win every year. That comes from the manager.”
