Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has denied he and Manchester United counterpart Alex Ferguson have a personal rivalry.

The two great north-west sides meet at Anfield on Saturday for the first time since United overtook Liverpool as the most successful league side in English football.

Much has been made of the battle between the two managers, who first clashed more than 20 years ago, but Dalglish says he has no thoughts of oneupmanship.

The Liverpool legend, though, is purely focused on what is best for his team and that, of course, will be three points against their arch-rivals this weekend.

"I don't have any individual contest with Fergie," he said.

"These are football clubs that are playing - we don't play anymore. We can't influence anything other than what we do in the build-up and preparation for the games.

"The most important thing for us is how we compete on the pitch as a team. Head to head (against Ferguson)? I wouldn't have a clue what the score is in that and it doesn't really matter to me.


"I am in competition with him because we are playing against them on Saturday but over and above that we are a unit.

"Everyone has an important role to play and if I continue to do my job, the players do theirs, the fans and owners do theirs we will be much better off.

"It is not about someone getting one over on someone else - it is about the football club."
