Manchester United wing ace Cristiano Ronaldo says the players are delighted after manager Sir Alex Ferguson described them as the strongest squad he's had in his 21 years at Old Trafford.

"It is always good to hear praise from our manager, who over the years has coached several United teams" Ronaldo said. "If he says that it's good for us, especially the new players. It is very positive.

"I have scored some goals and played well, now it is important to continue like this. I always work to be the best, with the aim of improving year on year on the weaker parts of my game. I've been in good form, now I've got to make sure I maintain this consistency."
