Man Utd boss Ferguson: Can Mourinho work with Abramovich?

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned whether Jose Mourinho can work with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. Ferguson insists Chelsea's fate does not concern him.

The United boss is unconvinced Mourinho will work under Roman Abramovich again, and added: "I have spoken to Jose a couple of times and he has never indicated to me that he was going back to ­Chelsea. He did say he got on well with Perez at Real Madrid, so I was surprised to hear him open the door about coming back to England.

"I'd like to see him back - as long as he improves his wine. His wine was c**p! It must have been Chelsea he was talking about, though, ­because I don't think he is about to turn up at City.

"From what I can gather, they are happy with (Roberto) Mancini and he is staying.

"I am not thinking about what this game means to Chelsea - I really couldn't give a monkey's.

"City are obviously going to be second and I will play my strongest team against Chelsea out of respect to the other two teams chasing the Champions League places.

"I said to Arsene Wenger after we played Arsenal last week that we would play our strongest side.

"I will pick a team to win the game. It is not my concern what happens to Chelsea after that."
