MANCHESTER: Sir Alex Ferguson is confident that Manchester United can stay the dominant force in English football despite seeing several seasoned campaigners retiring recently.

The retirements of Gary Neville and Paul Scholes mean the famous “Class of 1992” is making the transition into history. However, Ferguson remains convinced that the team has the strength to compete.

“We were aware players were coming to an end,” he said. “We’re confident in Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley coming back [from loan deals] and we were determined to get Phil Jones. We’ve replaced the players who left us.”
