Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says his relationship with Manchester City counterpart Mark Hughes is amicable.

Hughes, a quiet presence on the field, has never shown an inclination to seek advice from the Scot as some of his other proteges, including former team-mates Roy Keane and Paul Ince, have done.

"When I see Mark we always have a glass of wine after the game and I don't expect anything to be different this time," said Ferguson.

"It is not as if you phone up all your old players to ask how they are getting on.

"Some give me a call for advice at times but we all have our own job to do."
