Ferguson warns Man U against complacency

Alex Ferguson London, May 4(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has warned his players against taking Schalke FC lightly in today’s Champions League’s semi-final decider and Chelsea in Sunday’s Premier League encounter.

United go into the Old Trafford encounter two goals ahead thanks to their efforts in Germany last week.

Last season, the Red Devils were knocked out of the Champions League on aggregate by Bayern Munich, despite beating them at Old Trafford, and later lost to Chelsea in the Premier League.

“It’s what happened last year - exactly the same situation. I hope Manchester United don’t get complacent. Our work ethic will be very high in order for us to qualify [for the final],” the Independent quoted Ferguson, as saying.

Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand are amongst those who look set to miss today’s game, but Ferguson insists his team will have their minds fully focussed on a Wembley date with Barcelona on May 28.

“It is always dangerous in football to assume you have cracked it; that you have found a sliver bullet or discovered some secret formula for success,” Ferguson said.

“We live in exciting times for Manchester United and while I want both players and supporters to enjoy every minute of it, we must take nothing for granted,” he added. (ANI)
