Fergie plays down trophy talk

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists he isn't thinking about winning the quintuple after his team secured their second trophy of the campaign on Sunday by beating Tottenham in the Carling Cup Final. United won 4-1 on penalties after a goalless draw following 120 minutes of football and, after winning the Club World Cup in December, now have their sights set on the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup. However, Ferguson said: "I'm not getting carried away with it, only the media will. We'll keep our feet on the ground. "We could go to Fulham in the FA Cup, the ball comes off someone's backside and we're out of that one." Goalkeeper Ben Foster saved Jamie O'Hara's penalty in the shoot-out, with Ferguson adding: "The future's his. "The present belongs to Edwin van der Sar, that's obvious, but that performance can only strengthen my opinion of Ben's ability and his own self-confidence. "He's a strong character - he's had to be. He's had to come through two cruciate ligament injuries and you have to have something inside you to do that."
