Sir Alex Ferguson has rejected the theory that next Monday's Manchester derby represents a collision between passion and money.

After looking to have their 20th Premier League title sewn up a fortnight ago, Manchester United will head to the Etihad Stadium knowing they must avoid defeat if they are not to surrender top spot to neighbours City.

On a battle between the established elite and City's nouveaux riche excesses, Ferguson told RMC Sport: "That's not really accurate. I don't agree with that. It's true City became rich in a pretty incredible way, but it's not the fact there is a new owner and new ambitions which necessarily change things."
