Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists there's no rift with the staff at Manchester City.

Ferguson had a touchline spat with his opposite number Roberto Mancini there last season but whatever the outcome in the blue half of Manchester this weekend, the 70-year-old insists that he'll be happy to share a drink with the Italian afterwards.

Fergie said: "I think that once the game is over you have to accept that the other team are sharing the same emotions and desires and expectations as yourself.

"If you lose then you have to show you are capable of forgetting what has happened out on the field by sharing a glass of wine and a chat."
