The Red Devils moved back to the top of the division on Sunday by beating West Brom 2-0, after Manchester City had been beaten 1-0 by Swansea.
The Scottish coach has admitted that his team have the ability to deal with pressure, and that they won’t crack going into the final games of the season.
“We have that experience and it does help,” he stated in a press conference, published by Sky Sports.
“We won’t get nervous. Against West Brom we kept playing our football even at 1-0 when the fans were thinking ‘just get us a second.’
“It didn’t concern the players one bit. It is good to see that kind of temperament,” he stated.
Ferguson went on to praise Ashley Young, who has returned to fitness to boost the current English champions.
“It takes time to get your rhythm back and Ashley showed that in his two performances against Ajax last month.
“But he did well against Athletic Bilbao on Thursday and he was excellent again against West Brom,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports are suggesting that Paul Pogba has signed a new contract with the Old Trafford club, amid rumours that he was ready to leave the English champions.
The talented French youngster is out of contract at the end of the season, and has dragged his heels over agreeing a new deal with United, with Juventus reportedly interested.
However, it is now believed that he will stay with United, however the player or club have not confirmed this as yet.
