Ferguson adamant Man Utd will progress in Champions League

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken of his determination to avoid a repeat of last season’s disastrous Champions League campaign, where the Red Devils crashed out at the group stage of what had looked a relatively comfortable group containing Benfia, Basel and Otelul Galati.

However, according to Reuters, Ferguson has vowed that his charges will not make the same mistake again, citing the club’s good record in Europe of late bar last season’s blip.

We’ve lost two finals to Barcelona and won two other finals in the last decade or so but we want to do better,” said Ferguson. “Certainly we’ll do better than last year - no question about that.” “The European Cup is incredible. There’s an atmosphere in the build-up to a European final and great charisma about it. Also, without question, it elevates your status within the game like the Real Madrids and AC Milans. We want to be up there in terms of the number of trophies won in European football."

United open their Champions League campaign against Turkish champions Galatasaray at Old Trafford on Wednesday and will hope for a comfortable evening with a clash with red-hot rivals Liverpool to come at Anfield on Sunday. Braga and CFR Cluj are the other two teams contesting the group.

Ferguson could give Robin van Persie his European debut for the club having rested the Dutchman for Man Utd’s 4-0 victory over Wigan on Saturday, after he picked up a slight injury on international duty for the Netherlands.

I hope not and I highly doubt it. Away from home, Rooney back in the team, United on a high after the derby win, crows fired up for the title race, pelyars fired up for the title race, I would be very surprised if Tottenham get anything from Old Trafford. Also on the basis of the last 5 or so results against Tottenham I would think that would boost Man United's confidence. Interested to see how they cope with Gareth Bale.
