Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has assured fans last season's Champions League flop will not be repeated.
Ferguson believes his side will return to the competition with a bang this year.
"It's fair to say we threw that one away," said Ferguson. "That won't happen again next season.
"We'll qualify from the group stages. I'll make sure of it. European football is hugely important to us and we must compete for the biggest trophies.
"We need to make a statement - and show everybody last season was just a blip."For all the latest football news go to tribalfootball.com.
