Ferguson: My best ever Man Utd squad

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson rates his current squad as the best he's ever had at Old Trafford.

Ferguson said: "We have only won the European Cup once in my time at Old Trafford so that tells you how difficult it is.

"In that respect it is going to be hard but we have the players who can make us successful. They are confident about expressing themselves and they enjoy playing.

"They are not afraid of challenges and there is enough youth in the team to make them ambitious and want to get there.

"This is probably my best squad ever in terms of completeness."

Ferguson can always rely on the experience of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs - but his youngsters have also stood up to challenges and adversity.

The United boss added: "The one thing these lads have is the quality to play on the big occasion. In that sense, it is like 1999.

"They are very confident - Nani, Ronaldo, Anderson, Rooney. It gives you hope they can handle big occasions like that.

"You want to see them express themselves and be fearless. I am not slightly worried about their temperament."
