Man Utd chief Gill: No angry Calderon exchange

Manchester United chief David Gill was spotted in conversation with Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon before last night's Champions League final.

Calderon has infuriated United with his public pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gill said of the encounter: "I just said hello.

"There was no need to say hands off, because there are no hands on.

"I just said hello. I know him from various Uefa meetings."

When asked if Ronaldo's name was mentioned, Gill told Sky Sports: "No. Before the match I wasn't thinking about these sorts of things.

"You don't have long meaningful conversations before that match. It's just good luck and thank you very much. Simple as that."
