Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed deadly rivals Liverpool are now "back on the radar".

As United were clinching a record 19th crown, Liverpool were finishing in sixth, 22 points adrift with not even a Europa League place to cheer them. However, under Kenny Dalglish, Ferguson can sense a giant awakening from its slumber. And the Manchester United manager is prepared to concede they are a club to be wary of again.

"Liverpool went off the radar for a bit. They are now back on it. Long term you know they are going to be there," said Ferguson.

It is the same with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City, a rival in name - Ferguson did previously claim Liverpool was the true derby for his team - now in performance too.

"Let's be honest, you hate losing to any of them," he said.

"One of those four will always be a thorn in our flesh. They are our immediate challengers. History doesn't change.

"No matter where it comes from, somewhere along the line we are going to be faced with a big challenge from one of those four great clubs."
