Sir Alex Ferguson insists he doesn’t care how Manchester United win the league as long as they have the trophy in their hands come May.

The Red Devils head into Saturday’s clash at Sunderland with a commanding 15-point lead at the top of the table with nine games left to play.

Ferguson’s men were pipped to the title on goal difference by rivals Manchester City last season.

But the Scot says the method of victory will be irrelevant as long as the Red Devils win their 20th top-flight title this season.

“Winning the league is important. I don’t care what we win it by,” said Ferguson.

“It could be a dodgy goal off someone’s backside in the last minute of the last game of the season. It doesn’t bother me one bit.”

The 71-year-old added: “Winning the league is the issue. At this moment in time, we have a chance.”
