Sir Alex Ferguson Target on Winning Third Champions League Crown

With the Premier League title just about as good as done, ex-star of Manchester United Gordon McQueen believes that Sir Alex Ferguson is more determined than ever to claim a third Champions League crown. United were crowned kings of Europe in 1999 and 2008. He insists that a Premier League and Champions League double would even supplant the 1999 treble season as the Scot’s greatest achievement. ‘You can’t overlook the challenge that faced United when opponents Manchester City won the league last season,’ McQueen said. It was a huge shock to everyone at United however they have responded greatly well.

There is no doubt that the signing of Robin van Persie has made all the difference. His goals have grabbed the headlines and taken some of the pressure of Wayne Rooney, who has thrived playing alongside the Dutchman. Sir Alex decided to play both of them against Everton just three days before the match in Madrid as he knew a 12-point lead in the league would give them breathing space to think more about the Champions League. There is no doubt in my mind that Sir Alex’s priority is the Champions League. He often talks about how they have underachieved in the Champions League and he is right because they should have won it at least four times under him.

If they are successful in winning the league and the FA Cup then it has been a great season however a league and Champions League double is something else. If they do that it will be an unmatched achievement because the standards in England and from sides like Madrid and Barcelona in Europe are far higher than they were in 1999.

Manchester United vs Real Madrid

Manchester United were grateful to an extraordinary performance from goalkeeper David de Gea as they left the Bernabeu having gained an exceptionally Champions League 1-1 draw against Real Madrid. Danny Welbeck gave Sir Alex Ferguson’s team an early lead and a critical away goal from Wayne Rooney’s corner, however ex-United golden boy Cristiano Ronaldo inevitably reacted with an excellent header to draw Real level before the interval.

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho’s claim that it was “the match the world wanted to see”, both teams created opportunities to take a crucial lead to Old Trafford for the second leg of this last-16 tie in three weeks’ time.

The Premier League leaders would have been content with a score draw that gives them a good chance of progressing after the second leg at Old Trafford on March 5.
