Sir Alex Ferguson has refused to concede that Manchester United have won all they can, with the manager revealing the work ethic will be stronger than ever as the side continue to push for trophies.

"There's a responsibility as the manager of Manchester United. It doesn't go away,” Ferguson told the official United magazine.

"I'm not going to take it easy because we won the title. Hopefully we'll be better next season. The only thing you can do at this club is win - that's all that matters.”

Despite winning the Barclays Premier League title and making the Champions League final last season, Ferguson insists the side will keep pushing on to collect more trophies for their ever growing cabinet.

"We have to carry on, there's nothing else you can do,” the Manchester United manager said.

“We have a responsibility and expectation to live up to and that carries on next season.

"As I've always said, Manchester United should accept a challenge. We're good at that and, next season, we'll accept anything that comes our way."

Ferguson compared United’s success to that of Liverpool’s in the 1980s, when the Merseyside club set a record of 18 titles in the English league competition. United beat that record at the end of the last season, amassing a staggering 19 titles.

"It's a great feat winning this league, It was Liverpool's time in the 80s, it's our time now,” Ferguson said.

"This was a particularly special one because it means we've won the title more than anyone in the country. It's history and it's great for the tradition of this club.

"The players have been great, I think they deserved it because there were a lot of great performances. I'm dismissing all that nonsense that it's not a great Manchester United team."
