Lack of Champions League wins irks United boss

Sir Alex Ferguson feels it is 'ridiculous' that Manchester United have only twice been European champions. United first won the competition in 1968 before Ferguson guided the team to UEFA Champions League success in 1999. The long-serving Scot is determined to lift the trophy again and believes he has a squad capable of fulfilling that objective this season. But Ferguson was also left to lament the restrictions which he feels prevented him from winning the tournament in the mid-1990s. "I'd love to win it again," said Ferguson. "We've only won it twice and it's ridiculous that this club has only won it twice.

Tough as nails

"This club is made for European Cups and we have a chance this year. "The 1994 was arguably the best team I've had and if we hadn't had the ruling on the amount of foreigners you could play then we could possibly have won the European Cup then. "The team was that good. It was powerful, had great personalities and was tough as nails with some real match-winners. "The Treble-winning 1999 team's achievements are unparalleled and the present squad can go on to great success - but you can only judge a team on what it has achieved."
