Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed the appointment of Roy Hodgson at Liverpool and said it has meant the resumption of good relations between himself and the occupant of the Anfield dugout.

Ferguson had a troubled relationship with former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez, as for the first time in a two decades Liverpool threatened to dethrone the Old Trafford club. Now, with old friend Roy Hodgson in charge, Ferguson once again enjoys friendly relations with the Anfield boss.

"I’ve always had a good relationship with Liverpool managers", Ferguson told the club’s website. "That changed under the last regime, but that’s not a big issue for me."

Both clubs have very different ambitions this season, with Man Utd looking to win the Premier League, and Liverpool in a managed decline under Hodgson and aiming for a top four spot at the best.
