It looks more than coincidental that the UK Sport drugs test unit turned up at Manchester United's training ground yesterday, three days after the alleged debauchery at the United players' party, reports the Daily Mail.

Rio Ferdinand, who collected the £4,000-a-head whip-round, did not have to remember to turn up this time, as the players chosen at random were Carlos Tevez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs.
