Football: Fergie still relying on class of 92.

LEVERKUSEN v MAN UTD

SIR ALEX FERGUSON has admitted Manchester United will probably never have another class of 92.

It is 10 years to the day since David Beckham made his debut as a raw 17-year-old.

He then went on to lift every major club prize and become England captain.

And youth team colleagues - Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville - were with him all the way.

Speaking before tonight's Champions League game at Bayer Leverkusen, Fergie said: "For a group of players to come through at one club at the same time and play for 10 years is quite exceptional. It doesn't happen very often and it may not happen to us again.

"They all still have the same hunger and desire."

Fergie hopes they can rise to the occasion again tonight against a German side toiling after selling off their star players.

But he warned: "The belief to attack is still there."
