Fergie believes Man U can break through 80-goal markJanuary 31st, 2009 - 5:18 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan.31 (ANI): Coach and manager Alex Ferguson reckons his strike force can break through the 80-goal mark this season and carry Manchester United to glory.
All the talk recently has been about the Red Devils record 11 consecutive Premier League games without conceding.
Now Fergie wants the attack to grab back some of the headlines as they did in cutting loose in the 5-0 demolition of West Brom in midweek.
And the United boss believes Dimitar Berbatov, Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez and Cristiano Ronaldo can all go on and get 20 goals each this season. The Sun quoted Ferguson as saying: I certainly think they are capable of doing it. Quite rightly the defenders have been taking the credit this season up until now. I just hope now that its going to be the forwards who take the credit. The case of Ronaldo is a good one. Last year was a miracle season. To score 42 goals as a winger, it is hard to imagine he could replicate that. Yet people are saying he has not had a great season but hes still got 13 goals for us and had 11 assists. If we could dismiss last season altogether you would say that was incredible for a winger to score 13 goals by the halfway mark, he added.
Right now Ronaldo has 13, Rooney 12, Berbatov 11 and Tevez 10. (ANI)
