Alex Ferguson London, Apr.4 (ANI): Coach and manager Sir Alex Ferguson has accused some of his Manchester United stars of being too complacent in the Premier League title race.

Ferguson claims the shock defeat at Fulham two weeks ago, which followed a stunning collapse against Liverpool, has actually done United a favour.

“What it has done is get rid of all that nonsense in the media about us being untouchable, unbeatable and how magnificent we were,” The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.

“Everybody likes to read and hear good things about themselves. It’s a natural and understandable thing but it can have an impact - and there are a lot of young players in our dressing room. So maybe it was a good time for us to get that defeat at Fulham,” he added.”I had been trying to dampen things down and dismiss all the talk about winning five trophies. But that Fulham game has done the job for me. Now we can concentrate on playing football and not reading the newspapers,” Ferguson said. (ANI)
