Fergie credits last season's heart breaking loss to City for Man U's resurgence

London, Apr. 8 (ANI): Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed losing Premier League title last season sent shockwaves through Manchester United.

Ferguson however insisted that one of the most painful setbacks in the team's history has made them stronger and more determined to stop their rivals from becoming the dominant force in English football.

According to the Daily Star, Fergie and the team were left stunned almost 12 months ago when Sergio Aguero's stoppage-time goal saw Manchester City snatch the title away.

Fergie admitted the crushing blow was like a tremor, but he insisted the experience has been used as motivation for United to bounce back in stunning fashion.

The Blues thumped United 6-1 in this fixture last season to leave Fergie humiliated on his own ground.

He taunted City by telling them their attempts to sign Robin van Persie last summer were never going to work, the report added. (ANI)
