Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists that he is targeting a "big performance" in this year's FA Cup.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he wants to end the club's nine-year wait to win the FA Cup.

United have not won the competition since they defeated Millwall in the 2004 final, and after seeing his side record a 4-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday evening, Ferguson has admitted that the FA Cup is an "important trophy" to the club this season.

Ferguson told Sky Sports News: "It was a good performance. I think we respected Fulham because we played a very strong team today.

"The FA Cup's an important trophy for us this season. We haven't won it for almost 10 years, so we really need to have a big performance this year.

"Rio Ferdinand's never won an FA Cup medal - so we really need to do something about that."

United have not reached an FA Cup final since 2007, when they lost 1-0 to Chelsea.
