Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Liverpool have been following an "agenda" in maintaining their defiant stance around Luis Suarez.

Ferguson has revealed United had been asked by the Football Association not to offer any comment on the row between Suarez and United defender Patrice Evra at Anfield last month, which has led to the Uruguay striker being charged with making racist comments.

That did not stop Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish confirming that the Merseyside giants still stood by their man, who continues to protest his innocence. The United boss said: "I have noticed it has been part of their agenda over the last couple of weeks."
