Aging Chelsea is too old to win, says Manchester United's Fergie
London, July 24 : Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson h has reiterated that the aging superstars of the Chelsea football club are too old to win the Premiership next season. "I don't see outstanding progress coming from a team in their 30s," The Sun quoted the 66-year-old Scottish firebrand, as saying.
Fergie's fondness for playing mind-games with the opposition is seen as one of the key weapons in Manchester United's armoury, as well as being a pivotal reason for their wealth of achievements during his 22-year-reign at the club.
His latest swipe at the stars of Stamford Bridge has fanned the flames of an already intense rivalry between United and Chelsea fans follwing their epic domestic and European battles of last season.
Chaki wants to wipe the smile of Fergie's cragging features: "I want to see Ferguson's face when realises that he lost all of his titles to some old guys."
Some Chelsea fans think Fergie should be the one worrying about old age
One of them, Viva_Villa, said: "Ferguson you are one to talk about oldies you're about 97 yrs old and should be pensioned off."
