“I came to win that first title. The aim was to match Liverpool [in terms of performance – they were the best team at the time] and then be successful ourselves.”
- Sir Alex Ferguson
"If you look back 20 years we were nowhere near Liverpool. To overturn that kind of deficit is great credit to the club, to the manager and the players who have been involved. It's great to be in front of our biggest rivals."
- Ryan Giggs
The season may have ended with disappointment at Wembley, but don’t let that cloud what was otherwise a record-breaking campaign.
