Ahead of tomorrow's big derby, Sparky said: â€śYou have to understand the top managers donâ€™t get beaten very often so sometimes they donâ€™t take it as well as other managers.
â€śYou have to get used to getting beaten sometimes, myself included.
â€śWhen I was at Blackburn, we beat United 4-3. I think maybe Sir Alex was a bit critical of the approach of some of my players and he singled out Andy Todd, which I thought was unfair at the time and I said so afterwards.â€ť
Fergie was also dismissive this week of Cityâ€™s bid to challenge United.
Ahead of tomorrowâ€™s Manchester derby, Hughes added: â€śMore questions will be asked of people about what we are doing here. Sometimes their responses will be considered, sometimes they will be a bit dismissive.â€ť
