Fergie: Five Teams In Title Hunt But United Are The Team To Beat
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes there are five clubs chasing the Premiership title next season.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes there are five clubs chasing the Premiership title next season, and Spurs aren’t one of them.
Sir Alex believes the “noisy neighbours” Man City are equipped to mount a serious challenge this season, especially with the imminent arrival of Atletico Madrid star Sergio Aguero.
Fergie also admits the same old rivals of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool will all be competing for the Championship. The Scot is hoping to improve on his preparation following on from last season, the veteran manager believes his club started last season lacking full fitness.
“Last year I mucked up by giving the players too many half games in pre-season and not enough 90 minutes.
“I will address that this year because when we played Fulham and Everton we were well short fitness-wise.”
United drew both those games which, at the time, appeared to be very costly. Ferguson knows where the challenges are coming from this season, as he said:
“Anyone can win the league; ourselves, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal or Chelsea.
“But when I look at it, our biggest challenge is ourselves.”
