City still have long way to go - Fergie

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson congratulated Manchester City on snatching the Barclays Premier League title in a dramatic conclusion to the season - but warned them it would take a century to match Manchester United's record.

For a fleeting moment Ferguson and his players thought they had pipped their rivals when the final whistle at the Stadium of Light confirmed a 1-0 victory over Sunderland. However, City, who just minutes earlier had been trailing 2-1 at home to 10-man QPR, won it at the death when Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero scored in stoppage time.

Ferguson said: "They [City] can go on as much as they like. That's what you would expect, but the history of our club stands us aside. We don't need to worry about that. I think we have a rich history, better than anyone, and it will take them a century to get to our level of history."
