Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he is delighted with the position that his team are in at this stage of the season. Sir Alex admitted that his players could be forgiven for thinking that they would never catch Manchester City but their hard work is finally paying off.
Ferguson explained, "We are in the right place, at the right time and, most importantly, with the right players. After weeks trailing in second place, we got our noses in front. I am sure our players are ready to put the pressure on again.”
He added, "Our guys have been flogging away and perhaps wondering if they would ever catch up before we hit the finishing line. Well, we did and they are capable of going in front again. It's neck and neck now and I'd say it was an ideal time to be up with the leaders with only nine matches to go."
Manchester United have had their fair share of injury problems this season but they seem to be getting players back at the key stage of the season. Winger Nani and striker Michael Owen are set to return to training this week to give Sir Alex Ferguson more strength in depth.
