SAF resists opportunity to bait Chelsea boss Benitez

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has decided put his feud with Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez on hold for the time being. Benitez, who has failed to win over sceptical Chelsea support, seen lingering title ambitions quashed, crashed out of the Champions League and is now in a desperate scramble to secure a top four berth.

And now he faces a trip to Old Trafford for Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final.

"I'm not going to kick anyone when they're lying down," said Ferguson.

"It's not my style. My concern is Manchester United. What happens at Chelsea doesn't really affect me.

"Chelsea have a terrific record in the FA Cup, probably the best of any team in the last decade.

"It doesn't matter when you play Chelsea or who's in charge, we'll have a hard game."
