Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said there is no problem between him and defender Rio Ferdinand over the player's refusal to wear a T-shirt supporting the anti-racism Kick It Out campaign ahead of the 4-2 win over Stoke.

Following Ferdinand's defiance over the issue Ferguson said the 33-year-old would be "dealt with". The pair were reported to have resolved their differences on Sunday and Ferdinand trained at Carrington on Monday morning ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League encounter with Braga at Old Trafford.

Ferguson told a press conference on Monday: "There is no issue. There was a communication problem. But it has been resolved."
