Boss Expects Tough Season Ahead
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson fully expects a competitive campaign this season.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson fully expects a competitive campaign this season, and the Scot admits Tottenham and Liverpool will provide a bigger threat this season than they did last year.
Fergie believes Chelsea and Arsenal will once again challenge, along with money-bags Man City, and see’s Liverpool and Spurs as being up there come the end of the season:
“To win the league in England is very difficult and it doesn’t matter how you get the points, you just have to get them. You’ll need 84 points to win the league next season – definitely.
“There will be increased competition in the league – I expect Liverpool to be better and added to the top four you have got Tottenham, although they have not done any buying this summer which is surprising, so you expect it’s going to be a really tough league.
“You are looking at a top six fighting for a top four and that can only add to the excitement of the Premier League, which I think is the best product in the game now.
“In Germany next season all the season tickets are taken up in every ground and that will create a fantastic atmosphere in German grounds, but United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have full houses every week and I still think we are the best product.”
