Man United can still defend EPL title despite bad start: Ferguson

October 29, 2013 11:35 IST

Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has said that the Old Trafford club can overturn a poor start to win the league title, despite being eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal.

Alex FergusonFerguson said that Manchester United was the only club in the league that could come from behind to win because of their history, BBC reported.

Speaking at the first in a series of Q&A sessions following the release of his second autobiography, Ferguson underlined the unique pressures that came with the managerial job. Two wins in the last three games means that David Moyes's side has recovered from United's worst start in 14 years

Ferguson, who remains a club director, retired from the manager's position at the end of last season after winning 38 trophies in a 27-year reign. Moyes has struggled to win over some fans after a stuttering start to his United career.
