Sir Alex Ferguson remains content

Sir Alex FergusonManchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists that winning the Premier League was the main priority for the club this season.

The Red Devils were still in contention to complete the treble a month ago, but after dropping out of the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid and then losing to Chelsea in the FA Cup, the club only remains in contention for one piece of silverware.

The 19-time champions hold a 15-point advantage over nearest contenders and current holders Manchester City with the two sides set to meet on Monday night at Old Trafford.

Although the 71-year-old admits the treble would have marked something special, he is more than happy with regaining the Premier League title after missing out to the Citizens on the final day of the season last time round.

Ferguson said: “In the context of the kind of competition we have, teams from London – Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea – Liverpool and Everton, there are massive challenges every year.

“For every one of those teams, their supporters hope they win one trophy.

“We have won the one that really does matter to our fans.”
