Manchester United on a mission to make history: Fletcher

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar 21(ANI): Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has warned arch rivals Liverpool that his club is on a mission to make history.

United is aiming to become the first club to win the English Premier League for four successive seasons, and another triumph would also see them eclipse the overall record of 18 titles that Liverpool set in 1990.

"The thought of winning the title again is our inspiration because no team has ever done in four times in a row. Doing things that haven't been achieved before is what drives this club forward," The Mirror quoted Fletcher, as saying.

"People look at Manchester United and say we have no challenges left. But there are always challenges. When we win things we enjoy it, but in an instant it is time to go again. When we beat Villa in the Carling Cup Final there was no time to celebrate."

"It is all about winning trophies at the club so we don't spend too much time celebrating what we achieve. There's always another challenge waiting for Manchester United and when you've won one you start looking forward to the next one," he added.

The 26-year-old further said that it was disappointing for him to have missed last year's Champions League against Barcelona due to suspension and said that he wants to rectify it.

"You can never take a Champions League Final for granted - look at Paul Scholes, who had to wait nine years after missing out in 1999. We've got to the last two finals, won one of them, and we now have that experience of what it takes to get there," Fletcher said.

"If we can keep up that level of performance we will take some stopping. We will be very hard to beat. I enjoy playing the big games, but I'm not taking anything for granted about the manager picking me for them," he added. (ANI)
