Sir Alex Ferguson feels that his current Manchester United squad is stronger than the one that managed to win the treble.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that he currently has stronger squad at his disposal than the one that he had in 1999.

The team of 14 years ago, which contained the likes of David Beckham, Roy Keane and Dwight Yorke, became the first English club in history to win a Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup treble.

However, with his side battling on all three fronts at the moment, Ferguson believes that he has a much greater strength in depth.

"We have a stronger squad now When we went to the [Champions League] final, Keane and Scholes were suspended but Henning Berg was the only injury," he told reporters. "I still had to pull in [Jonathan Greening] who had only played once or twice in the first team.

"He got a medal for being on the bench. That gives you an idea of the strength of the squad."

Ferguson's side are currently 12 points clear at the top of the table.
