Man Utd boss Ferguson targets Liverpool European Cup tally

Sir Alex Ferguson has reacted to Manchester United’s safe passage through to the next stage of this season’s Champions League by declaring his intention to see the Old Trafford club match the five European Cups won by Liverpool, the Daily Mail has reported.


Sir Alex Ferguson


United currently have three European Cups to their name, two won by Ferguson, in 1999 and 2008, with the team’s first trophy arriving in 1968, almost a decade before Liverpool’s inaugural triumph in 1977. But Liverpool then claimed four European Cups in seven years and added a fifth in 2005, taking the Merseyside team into the upper echelons of European Cup holders.


Real Madrid are the most decorated side in the history of the competition, winning the trophy on nine occasions, including five in a row between 1956 and 1960, although the Spanish side have not won the competition since 2002. Milan are second in the list of all-time winners with seven, but their last tournament win came in 2007. Liverpool are third in the all-time rankings.


United’s three European Cups leaves them level with Inter and behind Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, who have each won the trophy four times. Chelsea are the current holders of the prize, winning their first-ever European Cup after a penalty shootout against Bayern.


Ferguson said: “In terms of the history of our club, we should have won more and I want to win it again and get into the bracket of winners like Liverpool, our biggest rivals, Bayern Munich and Ajax.


Milan and Real Madrid have got separated from the rest but that definitely drives me on a bit. I get really frustrated when I think about the opportunities we have had to win it, but you can’t be greedy.
