Ferguson backs experienced players to grab record title for United

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar 16(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson reckons his experienced players will carry the club to a record 19th title.

With just eight games left in the Premier League, Ferguson is banking on the know-how of his multi-medal winners including Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand.

"Experience will certainly be crucial. The lads who have been there and done it before will help us," The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.

"Their know-how will be very important for us as the season gets really interesting. There's a big programme of games coming up and we'll be making changes when we need to," he added.

Victory in the league this season will not only mean United go ahead of Liverpool and stand alone with 19 titles, but they will also become the first English club to win four titles in a row.

"It would be a fantastic achievement. The opportunity is there for us and we are all aware of that," Ferguson said.

"I have set us a title target: Win every game between now and the end of the season! Obviously it's a big ask, but that's what we must aim for," he added. (ANI)
