I want to win - Fergie

Manchester United, Last updated:

Sir Alex Ferguson has vowed to send out a strong team to try and win the European Super Cup against Zenit St Petersburg on Friday.

Fergie wants revenge for the 1999 defeat against Lazio in the same fixture and fans looking to back the Reds in the match against the Uefa Cup winners, will be delighted to see several players returning.
Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves will both start for United, barring any unforeseen problems between now and kick-off.
Club captain Neville has not started a competitive fixture this season due to the impressive form of Wes Brown, while England team-mate Hargreaves has had problems with tendonitis again.
The reintroduction of the pair is not the only positive for Ferguson and punters looking to get a return by using their free £25 bet, will also be happy to see Nani available again after completing his three-match ban.
Ryan Giggs should also be fit after further hamstring trouble and it looks likely Ferguson will want to give him a run out.
"I want to win," said Ferguson. "I remember the last time we went there I only played half a team because we had a Monday league game against Newcastle.
"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'."
