Man Utd boss Ferguson confident players will retain hunger

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has no fears of his players' hunger waning after this season's Double triumph.

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."
