Sir Alex Keeping Quiet on Suarez; SIR Alex Ferguson Is Determined Manchester United Will Retain Their Dignity as Patrice Evra and Luis Suarez Come Face to Face for the First Time Today since the Racism Row Exploded between the Pair, Writes

The 38-year-old will make his 899th club appearance if he plays some part today and Ferguson is delighted to have him around.

He said: "Ryan is a marvellous player. He epitomises all my teams here at United.
