Fletcher targets Euro glory

07 March 2009 11:30
Darren Fletcher believes Manchester United are 'definitely capable' of becoming the first club to retain the UEFA Champions League. United lifted last season's trophy after a penalty shoot-out success over Chelsea in Moscow and are in contention to reach the quarter-finals this term after a 0-0 draw at Inter Milan in the first leg of their last 16 tie. Since the European Cup changed to the Champions League format, no club has been able to secure back-to-back victories in the final. But Fletcher has revealed the feelings enjoyed in Moscow last year have made United determined to create history this season. "We were sitting in the dressing room and there were so many players already talking about winning it again," Fletcher told the Daily Mail when reflecting on the win over Chelsea. "Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand marching around telling everybody, 'I like this feeling, let's keep it going'. "That's why the club gets stronger and stronger. I know nobody has retained the Champions League, but we are definitely capable of it. "If we do not at least get near it, the club will see that as a disappointment, just as were disappointed we didn't do the Treble last year. "We always think we can achieve more. Look at Ryan (Giggs). I'm sure he sees the Premier League trophy as his trophy and why shouldn't he? "He has won it so many times it's as if he lends it out for the odd year."
