London: Ace defender Rio Ferdinand has said that Manchester United will emerge stronger after losing the Premier League title.

Manchester City beat archrivals United to the Premier League title on goal difference after a dramatic last-gasp 3-2 win over Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season.

Ferdinand said: “It’s a cruel way to lose the title — last day, almost last kick of the game.”

“But we have to dust ourselves down and get ready for next season,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.

“We’ve got to make sure we learn from this, deal with it, push on and make sure this never happens again,” he added.
