The Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he was ecstatic after the 1-0 win over Fulham, which he has also said that was similar to a title winning feeling. This victory has helped United go 10 points clear at the top of the table. They will be having this lead to themselves until Manchester City take on Liverpool on Sunday. Ferguson has said that this victory was very much similar to the one they achieved six years ago when Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game on the way to a memorable victory. Back then, Chelsea were the title contenders for United.
This time around, the club will have to contend with the noises from their arch rivals Manchester City. Manchester United had managed to take all three points from the match courtesy of a late winner from Wayne Rooney. The goal scored by Rooney was very much similar to the one scored by Ronaldo in the past. This victory has also enabled United to open a 16 point advantage over third placed Chelsea with only 14 matches remaining in the campaign. Ferguson, though, has warned against any complacency from the players after they allowed the title to slip in the final eight matches of last season.
“It was similar to when we played here a few years ago when Cristiano scored near the end and we went on to have an undefeated run after that. It was around the same time too. It was well taken and Rooney was unlucky before that, hitting the post and having a couple of shots saved by the goalkeeper. We’ve said that to him – (goalkeeping coach) Eric Steele in particular – to enjoy playing here. It’s a challenge and it’s not easy for a young goalkeeper, but he’s enjoyed tonight,” said Ferguson.
