Ferguson calls for ruthless Man Utd
Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken of his continued regret over last season’s dramatic finale to the Premier League season, where Manchester United only lost out on their 20th league title to near neighbours and bitter rivals Manchester City on goal difference.
According to the Daily Mirror, after United produced an inspired second-half performance with goals from Paul Scholes, Javier Hernandez as well as two more from debutants Alex Buttner and Nick Powell, to come away 4-0 victors at home to Wigan on Saturday, Ferguson spoke of his pleasure that even once the game was won, his team continued to push forward in search for more goals
“That was the pleasing part,” said Ferguson. “Last season we lost the league on goal difference - that won’t happen again. In the first half we never got started. But once we got the speed of our game right in the second half, it made a difference as we became more aggressive. We played the way we want to play and should play all the time with pace, speed and very good penetration. It turned out to be a good day for us.”
Following their opening game defeat at Everton, Ferguson’s men have racked up three consecutive victories and currently lie second in the Premier League table ahead of their grudge match with Liverpool at Anfield next Sunday. Before that however, United begin their Champions League campaign at home to Turkish champions Galatasaray on Wednesday.
