Man Utd boss Ferguson admits Champions League remains ultimate target

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits winning a third Champions League is his ultimate goal this season.

While all his focus is currently on regaining the league title, Ferguson admits the Champions League remains a huge attraction.

He said: "When you lose the title by a point you wonder where you lost the point that mattered.

"But from my perspective, during the history of this club, the European Cup is a big attraction. For me, anyway.

"We were terribly unlucky last year. We were certain to get to the final. We just did not have that luck. That must be a priority.

"But because the Premier League is such a tribalistic competition you cannot help but go for it. Every game is so competitive, you have six or seven competitors, you can't avoid going for it."
