'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Queiroz Would Go For Everything

Manchester United are six points clear at the top of the Premier League, face a Champions League second round tie against Lille and are in the 4th round of the FA Cup where they will play Portsmouth. Healthy position at this stage and assistant manager Carlos Queiroz is already looking forward.

The Portuguese coach is not a firm favourite of United fans as he is believed to be responsible for the neverending experiments with that wretched 4-5-1 formation that always failed to deliver the expected results. United used the 4-4-2 in the vast majority of games this season and our success convinced nearly everyone that this is the way to go for the Reds. We're in a position now where our assistant manager believes it makes sense to talk about the prospect of fighting for glory on all fronts.

'It's not enough for us to compete only for the league. We also have ambitions and a great desire to win the other competitions as well.

'The reality at the moment dictates that the championship will probably be a two-horse race.

'But that isn't the case when it comes to the FA Cup and Champions League - it's wrong to think those competitions are also between us and Chelsea.'

'We deserve our position because we're playing the best football in the league at the moment and all the lads are doing very well.

'We haven't won anything yet though. We're in a good position as a result of our hard work, commitment and concentration and we must keep that going until the end of the season.

'The race will not be easy and I'm sure Chelsea will not give us any chances to make mistakes.

'Letting our focus and our state of alertness slip even just a little bit is the wrong attitude for us.'

Most of the tabloids put it in a way that suggested Queiroz would be pleased with nothing less than another treble. If you read his comments, you will see that is not the case.

In fact, it's quite an unsignificant comment. Yes, we want to win everything and yes, we have to concentrate until the end of the season. That's true. But I think anyone connected with United should utter a word that can be somehow linked with an idea of another treble, for it's only January. Such talk can create an extra burden on players and considering our remaining away fixtures, that may easily result in disaster.

For me, the league is the priority and I believe that is on the top of Sir Alex Ferguson's list, too.
