Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs has shrugged off reports of a rift with manager David Moyes, claims Jamie Jackson of The Guardian.
According to the article, the former Wales international had reportedly fallen out with the Old Trafford boss over "football issues" in a disappointing season for the club.
But, ahead of the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich, Giggs is quoted as saying: "There is no problem with the manager; I don't know where that came from. The relationship is good."
However, Giggs refused to accept Bayern were favourites for the tie, and added:
Bayern are a fantastic team, they are the holders and Pep Guardiola has taken over and added a few new players and they are a very strong team; favourites in most people's eyes.
But we are Manchester United, and at Old Trafford we have had so many great nights.
We don't see ourselves as underdogs, we see ourselves as Manchester United playing at home.
Bayern head coach Pep Guardiola joked former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson might have offered him the chance to take over at Old Trafford, but he could not understand his Scottish accent, reports Jeremy Cross of the Daily Star.
The former Barcelona boss is quoted as saying:
He invited me to a super restaurant. We spent a very good time together but my English is not so good.
So when Sir Alex spoke quickly I didn't understand him. So maybe I didn't understand if I received an offer or not.
It was a friendly dinner, like always he has with me. He was so gentle and we spent a very good time together.
