Fergie's Proud Of His Brilliant Team

Sir Alex Ferguson feels we deserved to win and hailed the current team as his best ever.

The manager was understandably elated, having got his hands on that second European Cup he craved so much.

"I think this has got the makings of our best ever team," he told reporters.

"This is an amazing achievement, it`s fantastic. As a club, we started the sojourn into Europe in 1955. And we deserve to get this trophy now."

"I think there was a sense of fate about it. It was also my first penalty shoot out win in a big game. I`ve won Charity Shields, European Cups, Scottish Cups, but this is the first one in a big game."


Yep, 50 years after Munich, 40 years after Wembley... fate, destiny, that kind of things.

"I think we deserved to win the game. In the first half we were fantastic and we should have been 3-0 up. But they scored right on half time, they got a lucky break there, and I thought Chelsea were the better side in the second half.

"But in extra time we got better and I`m just delighted for all the people here and my players. I`m very proud of my team."


Well, though Sir Alex described a totally even game (it was that, looking at the whole picture) he thought we deserved it. I also think we deserved it but only because I'm a United fan and because we won it. Had JT scored we couldn't have said Chelsea don't deserve it.

But savour this fantastic achievement. I, for one, will be lenient with the team next season - this one can hardly be equalled let alone surpassed. And Fergie is right to be proud of them. Congratulations and thank you!
