The celebrations have only just finished as far as Manchester United’s 19th Premier League title victory is concerned, although Sir Alex Ferguson has now turned his attention towards next season and the prospect of winning a 20th league title.
Ferguson has been speaking to Inside United magazine and claims that the pressure on the players to deliver will ensure that they bring more glory to Old Trafford, claiming that it’s the Red Devils’ time to shine after Liverpool’s dominance in the 80’s.
“There’s a responsibility as the manager of Manchester United. It doesn’t go away,” he said. “I’m not going to take it easy because we won the title. Hopefully we’ll be better next season. The only thing you can do at this club is win – that’s all that matters.
“We have to carry on, there’s nothing else you can do,” he told Inside United magazine. “We have a responsibility and expectation to live up to and that carries on next season. As I’ve always said, Manchester United should accept a challenge. We’re good at that and, next season, we’ll accept anything that comes our way.”
There have been rumours that Samir Nasri could be on his way to Old Trafford in the summer, with Ferguson looking to strengthen the midfield area after the retirement of Paul Scholes.
