Winning trophies is about being a winner, not a loser: Man U boss Fergie

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb.28 (ANI): Manchester United coach-cum-manager Alex Ferguson has said that winning trophies is not just about collecting trophies, but indicative of separating the winners from the losers over a sustained period of time.

"From a personal point of view, I don't add up all the trophies and think about how many I have won. For me, winning these trophies is about thinking of yourself as a winner and not a loser, so I look at it that way," News of The World quoted Fergie, as saying.

"Once you get to a final you want to win it. It's important for the players. There's no way we want to come away from Wembley without the trophy," he added.

"We are a successful club with a winning tradition and we look on every trophy we win as a vital experience for the young players. It's a learning curve for them and another rung on the ladder in terms of getting to the peak of their United career. We want to take it back on the team bus. We showed that desire against Tottenham when we played them in the final season," he said. (ANI)
