Ferguson ready for Super Cup revenge

26 August 2008 16:50

MANCHESTER (AFP) - Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be motivated by revenge in Friday's Super Cup showdown against Zenit St Petersburg.

Ferguson is still bitter about Lazio's post-match celebrations when the Italian club beat United in their last Super Cup appearance in 1999 and has no intention of suffering a repeat in Monaco.

"I want to win. I remember the last time we went there I only played half a team because we had a Monday league game against Newcastle," Ferguson said.

"When I saw Lazio celebrating at the end, it was like they had won the World Cup. I was not too pleased. I thought: 'That will not happen again'."

Ferguson has pledged to send out a strong team against UEFA Cup holders Zenit, with England duo Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves set to feature after injury.

Hargreaves has been trying to overcome a tendinitis problem, while Neville is still working his way to full match fitness after an ankle injury.

Nani is also available having completed a three-match ban for his dismissal against West Ham last season.

Ryan Giggs should be fit as well after missing Monday's win at Portsmouth with a hamstring problem.
