Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted with the makeup of his squad.

Ferguson believes the experience of veterans like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes mixed with the enthusiasm of his young stars is proving a powerful combination.

He said: "The experienced players like Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Ryan know what's required because they have been here before.

"They want the title this season just as much as when they were first setting out on their careers.

"They don't let us down and it's this quality that has made it easy for me to give players like Giggs and Scholes new contracts that take them past the age when most footballers are ready for an easier life.

"The young ones are following suit and shown the same determination and preparedness to go the extra yard when necessary.

"Players like Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck and Jonny Evans have shown they are made of the right stuff."
