Following United’s win over Chelsea yesterday they are on the verge of a 19th title and surpassing Liverpool’s record of 18, something that has been the aim of manager Sir Alex Ferguson since he joined the club in 1986.
Whilst Ferguson himself stated there is still work to be done it is unlikely that United will fail to secure just a point against either Blackburn or Blackpool and assistant manager Mike Phelan along with the players want to go out and win the trophy for manager Sir Alex Ferguson:
“You set targets all the time.
“The Chelsea result gives the manager an opportunity to get the 19th now.
“It is something we have been striving for and all the players will be very pleased if we can get that for him.”
