Manchester United begin their bid to reclaim the Premier League title tonight, as they travel to Goodison Park to face Everton.
United lost their crown in the most dramatic fashion last season, when Sergio Aguero netted a stoppage-time winner to send the trophy to the Etihad.
Striker, Danny Welbeck is determined to put the disappointment behind him, claiming how Sir Alex Ferguson’s words helped to drive the younger players onto future success.
He told the Daily Telegraph said: “We were travelling home from Sunderland on the coach and he went round all the young players and said to them ‘Never forget this, because this will win you titles.
‘This will make some of you into men and be the best you can be.’ “When the manager says things like that to you, you really want to take note of it.”
Welbeck faces increased competition upfront with the arrival of marquee signing, Robin Van Persie from Arsenal, but the England international is expected to sign new five-year contract this week.
Ferguson’s business in the transfer market is not over yet, as Dutch full-back, Alexander Buttner, is expected to fly into Manchester today and complete a move from Vitesse Arnhem.
