Sir Alex Ferguson Is Still Optimistic
Manchester United supremo Sir Alex Ferguson remains optimistic despite of the embarrassing 1–0 defeat to their bitter crosstown enemies Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last week. The experienced manager now hopes that Mark Hughes´s Queens Park Rangers side manage to beat Manchester City at Eastlands on Sunday.
One can always have too much of a good thing. This may even apply to such a good thing as abundance of money. In fact, money can make people extremely arrogant. Now while the Greek hero Achilles had his heel, Manchester City´s vulnerable point is arrogance. Sir Alex Ferguson: “I took a team called Aberdeen to beat Real Madrid in a European final with 11 home-bred players, the oldest one 27 years old. That is Queens Park Rangers’s challenge, to go and do an Aberdeen. The players had incredible belief in themselves and I told them they would win the game. I really believed it and felt we were a certainty. It was a very good team, a very close-knit bunch of lads who all grew up together.”
