We can cope with setback - Ferguson

Next Story

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insisted there was no need for panic after seeing his title-chasers humbled at Newcastle.

The Magpies ensured that arch rivals Manchester City remain three points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League by beating the champions 3-0 on Tyneside as the run of surprise results for the main contenders over the holiday period continued.

However, Ferguson was taking a measured approach when asked about the impact of a potentially costly defeat, and told Sky Sports: "It's not a time to panic or anything like that. We have got the experience to cope with that."
