Ferguson ready for Super Cup revenge

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.
