Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed his anger at Manchester City’s title win last season, though he insists his side remain the team to beat, reports the
Ferguson’s side succumbed to a last-minute title defeat in May, and it is the manner in which they lost that has the Scot so angry. Speaking whilst on the squad’s pre-season tour of South Africa, the 70-year-old has insisted his side will bounce back.
When asked whether the title loss on goal difference had hurt him he responded: “Yes, definitely, I’ve lost my temper and I’m angry.”
Ferguson’s belief in his side comes after Manchester United successfully saw off Arsenal and Chelsea’s title wins in recent seasons, having failed to reclaim their title just once in the previous five times it has changed hands, and he remains confident of doing so against fierce rivals Manchester City.
Meanwhile, Ferguson has dismissed suggestions the 2012-13 season will be his last in charge of the Red Devils after questions were raised over his health. Ferguson suffered a nose bleed at a charity dinner shortly after the end of the season prompting speculation age was catching up with him, but Ferguson insisted it was down to too much flying.
