thumbnail Hello,

Fergie's henchmen put in some sterling work this season...

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has offered his gratitude to his coaching and medical staff at Old Trafford for their efforts over the season.

The Red Devils just failed in their bid to claim a fourth consecutive Premier League title and were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage by Bayern Munich.

They did though win the League Cup, and Ferguson feels that the efforts of his backroom team deserve recognition.

"I can be proud of my medical staff and my coaching staff for the experience they’ve shown and the way they’ve dealt with the injury situation," the Scot told

"No matter what team we’ve put on the pitch, they’ve always been well prepared and always well motivated.

"The training sessions have always been of the high standard we look for at this club. Those things are vital in a club like ours when you’re facing situations where there are injuries time and time again."

There have been some notable injury problems at Old Trafford this season and Ferguson was pleased to have such experience upon which to call in what has at times been a tricky campaign.

"You need experience to cope with that and the medical staff, coaching staff and myself have got that experience," he added.

"We always believe that if we’ve got eleven bodies to put on the pitch, we can always win, no matter who they are. I think that’s a great testimony to the standard here."
