Sir Alex keen for world title

6:00 am on 17 December 2008

Sir Alex Ferguson has called on his Manchester United players to leave a lasting legacy by becoming the first British side to win football's Club World Cup.

The United manager says the "world champions" tag is all the incentive they need ahead of their semi-final tomorrow against the host nation's team Gamba Osaka, and he believes the potential rewards for travelling to Japan outweigh the damage the trip could do his team's chances of retaining their English Premier League title.
