Football manager Ferguson wary of Schalke threat

4th May 2011 - Berko Tau

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson has warned his players that they cannot afford to take anything for granted in the Champions League semi-final second leg tonight (May 4th).

United lead German side FC Schalke 04 2-0 from the first leg in Gelsenkirchen, and are heavy favourites to join Barcelona in the Champions League final at Wembley later this month.

With the Red Devils also facing a potentially championship-deciding clash with Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday (May 8th), football manager Ferguson is set to rest some key players for the game against Schalke.

Despite this, the Scot is keen to ensure that his players do not take the Germans for granted.

"It is always dangerous in football to assume you have cracked it; that you have found a sliver bullet or discovered some secret formula for success," he said.

"We live in exciting times for Manchester United and while I want both players and supporters to enjoy every minute of it, we must take nothing for granted."
