Man Utd boss Ferguson: No need for me to buy Messi or Villa
"Other clubs will be glad we didn't buy big in terms of David Villa or going out to buy Lionel Messi," said Ferguson.
"But I really don't think there was a need for us to do that.
"I have to trust the younger players coming through. We are good at that and I am going to stick to it.
"Nobody has left the club and if people are saying City will be better because Mancini has an extra year under his belt then surely Manchester United, with the present squad and the younger players a year older, will improve too."
