Swansea defender Ashley Williams' friendship with Rio Ferdinand will be put on hold until after Saturday evening's eagerly-anticipated Liberty Stadium clash with Manchester United.

The city has been counting the days to the visit of Wayne Rooney and company since the fixtures were announced in June, and the occasion gives Williams the chance to get one over on United stalwart Ferdinand.

The 26-year-old shares the same agent as Ferdinand, but is keen to make sure any niceties are saved until after the final whistle, and said: "It's a game that you look for when the fixtures get drawn and I can't wait. I haven't spoken to Rio but I will probably message him before the game."
