London: Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has assured United fans that he will not let the club slip from its 15-point lead and is on the verge of leading Manchester United to the most emphatic Premier League title triumph ever.
United’s 1-0 win over Reading with a first half goal by Wayne Rooney opened up a 15-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table with only nine games left, and is close to touch the record-winning mark in English football of 18 points set by themselves over Arsenal in 1999-2000.
Ferguson said that although his team has shown great consistency over the past six months, which has brought them to their current leading position, they are not complacent and will work harder than before to strengthen their chances of winning the PL title.
Echoing his manager, Rooney said that although his club is close on a record 20th top-flight title and is in a fantastic position with nine games more games to go, he and the other players will have to work hard and perform even better than before.
I`ve got my strength back, which is nice. Now the next goal is to get my explosiveness and my fast twitch going, and that`s the next phase of my training.
