    Jose denies he snubbed Fergie at San Siro

    Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho may not have shaken hands after Tuesday's Champions League tie between their respective clubs and certainly disagreed about the quality of Spanish referee Luis Medina Cantalejo but Inter Milan's boss insists the pair "are always friends".

    Mourinho was distinctly unimpressed with Cantalejo's handling of the goalless game, seeing four of his players booked, including substitute goalkeeper Francesco Toldo who was yellow carded for protesting by the touchline.

    He said: "The referee did not please me in the slightest, but I don't want to talk about details.

    "But if we can have a referee like this at Old Trafford, it would be fantastic.''

    But Manchester United boss Ferguson felt the official was on top of his game, having refused to let Mourinho's mind games affect him.

    "The referee was first class," said Ferguson. "He wasn't intimidated, which is probably what Jose wanted."

    Ferguson was ultimately disappointed with the outcome given United dominated the Serie A leaders, especially in the first half, without getting the precious away goal they so richly deserved.


    "I am disappointed we have not won the game," admitted Ferguson, who has one victory in 13 attempts against the former FC Porto and Chelsea boss. "I realise the tie is not finished but we have given ourselves a great chance."

    Mourinho had left pitchside at the San Siro without a glance towards Ferguson but the enigmatic Portuguese denied he had blanked the Manchester United manager but explained: "My dugout is a special dugout because we have a door which gives me the chance to leave it directly."

    "Yesterday I left a £300 bottle of wine in the hotel with a note saying we would meet each other after the game at Old Trafford.

    "I am always close to him and we are always friends and I will be there for him after the second game."

    Mourinho has not forgotten Ferguson's taste in wine from the days when they locked horns in the Premier League, but knows his side will have to be on form at Old Trafford for his post-match drink with Ferguson to be a celebratory one for the Inter coach.

    "We have got to take the first chance which comes our way," he added.

    "We need 100% efficiency, that means the first chance we get must be a goal."

    I think the performance was very good yesterday. Rio, Carrick and fletcher did a very good job to protect the defence and young Evans. But it helps that Inter was day dreaming or over rawed in the 1st half. Too bad din get a goal. Their GK damn on form.

    I see it as Liverfool rebuidling again and that means another few years for the team to be championship material.

    K Dalghish has been out of football for more than 5 years.

    Arsene Wenger is another manager to consider..hhhmmm his middle name is Arsenal.

    Liv will go thru. RM is too disjointed. They looked weird and disinterested. If Benitaz will to be more brave, Liv will whack RM easily.

    Chelsea will have some probs. Juv look really good. Quite scary. BM also won 5-0 away to Sporting Lisbon.

    This Sun is the League Cup final against Spurs. So hard to get on level terms on games played with the rest and we are going 1 down this weekend again. Its only been 2 weeks!

    Think Tevez will partner Welbeck. If Anderson is fit, maybe he will play.

    Man Utd hit by Rafael injury blow

    Manchester United full-back Rafael has been ruled out for up to a month with a fractured ankle.

    The 18-year-old Brazilian, who will now miss Sunday's Carling Cup final, picked up the injury in last week's 2-1 win over Blackburn.

    "He's out for a month with a hairline fracture of his ankle," United boss Sir Alex Ferguson told the club website.

    "It's a blow because he's been playing in all the cup games and he's done so well. He deserves to be in the final."

    Rafael moved to Old Trafford in 2008 and made his first competitive appearance for United against Newcastle on the first day of the Premier League season.

    Sian!

    Looks like they might field a lesser team to face Real Madrid in 2 weeks time.

    CL and FA Cup is their best chance I think.

    Thats why when Liv beat Chelsea, it was the 2nd best result cos ultimately, the challenge will come from Chelsea.

    A draw with Sunnyland means their hopes diminish.

    Now wishing Aston Martin and Arsehol can draw ag LFC and Chelskis.
