Speaking with Sir David Frost on Sky Sports, Ferguson said: "I always feel comfortable with players who have got real ability and a bit of hunger about them, and in a way it mirrors my own image of a life with a winning attitude and the determination, and I associate myself with players like that.
"So therefore, the players have been successful with us over the years, very few have ever caused me a problem in terms of their desire to do better. So I don't really expect a problem next year. They're young enough and the great thing about winning the European trophy, of course, is that they want to do it again. Young players like Anderson and [Wayne] Rooney and [Cristiano] Ronaldo and Nani, these young boys, they'll want to do that again."
