"Wayne Rooney’s been with us for nearly eight years now and he’s won a few championship medals," Sir Alex added. "He knows what it takes to win it. When he and Cristiano Ronaldo first came to the club, it was all new to them – the demands of winning the league here.
"I think the aim for all the players is to try and get to four or five league medals, and then they’ll have great experience of how to handle the title race."
The full exclusive interview with Sir Alex is in the new issue of Inside United, on sale from Wednesday 29 February. The Reds’ official magazine is also available by subscription from www.manutd.com/magazine .
