Man Utd boss Ferguson: All the incentives are there

He told the Manchester Evening News: “All the incentives are there. We have to treat each game as it comes but the run-in to the league campaign, the FA and Europe offers fantastic incentives to all the players, the club and the fans.

“It is an exciting time here, there is no question about that.

“The players and their attitude to the way they are playing at the moment gives me encouragement. They are enjoying their football.

“Hopefully we can capitalise on the players’ form and their determination to do well and then hopefully we’ll be okay.”
