Ferguson backs Man Utd to return stronger next season
Sir Alex Ferguson believes Manchester United will be stronger next season for the disappointment of losing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City this season, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
When United’s final game of the season finished in a 1-0 victory over Sunderland at the same time City were trailing Queens Park Rangers 2-1, it appeared United would snatch the title from the grasp of their near-neighbours. But as United were preparing to celebrate a 20th league title news filtered through that City had struck twice in injury time to turn the top two on its head and take their first league title since 1968, leaving United deflated, having thought they had inched past City at the death.
Ferguson revealed he was proud at the way in which his players handled themselves on the last day, adding that he felt the players had gone about the season in the same manner, and that the young players in United’s squad would be better for their experience this season. He said: “We conducted ourselves in the right way. It was a good level of performance and I have absolutely no recriminations about our season at all. They are a good bunch of lads. The younger players will remember today because sometimes a bad experience is even better for you.”
