Sir Alex Ferguson says the only thing you should believe in newspapers is the date at the top of the front page.

Ferguson: ‘Within sections of the media there is a hatred of Manchester United that has always been there. I can understand it a little because we are such a high-profile club and it comes with the territory I suppose.

‘But they go over the top. They try to fragment the club; the players from the supporters and the supporters from the players. Our fans are aware of that and they will not fall into that trap.

‘I make the point strongly – when we are at our best is when the fans are right behind us. That is the only thing that should matter. Sticking together is the key for us.’
