Ferguson: Moscow glory will make current Man Utd my best

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says a Champions League victory in Moscow next week will establish his current team as the best he's had in his time at Old Trafford.

He said: "If we win the European Cup I think you would have to put this group of players right at the very top of those I have worked with.

"It is an emerging team. Normally, the average age of teams who win the European Cup is about 29.

"We have a lot of young players. (Wayne) Rooney, (Cristiano) Ronaldo, (Carlos) Tevez, Anderson, Nani, (Darren) Fletcher.

"Anderson could play in front of a million people and not be bothered one bit. It is that Brazil mentality.

"They are all young players and are getting better.

"But you also need experienced players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Edwin van der Sar.

"That kind of experience allows young players to develop. The future is bright and we are all looking forward to Moscow."
