Ferguson offers congratulations to Man City but warns they have not eclipsed Man Utd yet

Sir Alex Ferguson has congratulated Manchester City on winning the Premier League title, but added that it will take a long time for Roberto Mancini’s side to surpass the history behind Manchester United, the Daily Telegraph has reported.



City clinched the title with almost the last kick of the season as they scored two injury time goals to turn a 2-1 defeat against Queens Park Rangers into a 3-2 victory. For much of the afternoon it appeared United would creep past their local rivals and seal a 20th league crown but Ferguson and his players were left disappointed by City’s late comeback. Wayne Rooney had scored against Sunderland in the first-half and all the while City were trailing QPR, United were top of the table but three points.


Ferguson insisted that United’s history of success would take 100 years for City to match, but did concede the title to the blue half of Manchester. He said: “I think we have a rich history, better than anyone and it'll take them a century to get to our level of history. We accept challenges. We are good at that. On behalf of Manchester United, I would like to say congratulations to our neighbours.
