Ferguson: Man Utd always take Carling Cup seriously

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists he takes the Carling Cup seriously.

Ferguson, with two Cup wins in the last three years, said: "While obviously you don't quite rank it alongside the Premier League or Champions League, I certainly regard it as an extremely valuable tool in our club's strategy.

"I won't have it lightly dismissed. The competition is a stepping stone that has helped groom so many of our emerging players for the serious business of Premier League football."
