Lack of Euro success rankles Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson has reiterated his desire to deliver Champions League glory to Manchester United and insisted the club´s record of two European Cups is "ridiculous".

Ferguson recently celebrated 21 years at Old Trafford, during which time he has won nine Premier League titles since ending the club´s 26-year wait for championship success in 1993. That the famous 1999 Champions League final win against Bayern Munich remains Ferguson´s solitary European Cup glory is a source of gnawing frustration to the Scot.

"I´d love to win it again," said Ferguson, who turns 66 on New Year´s Eve. "We´ve only won it twice and it´s ridiculous that this club has only won it twice."
