Sir Alex Ferguson has brushed off claims from Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon that the Blues are on their way to replacing Manchester United as the biggest club in the world.
Kenyon made the claim on the eve of the clash between the two Premiership heavyweights on Sunday, but Ferguson has refused to be drawn into a war or words with the former Old Trafford chief executive.
"It's nice timing, but we're not going to quake or tremble about that," said Ferguson.
However, the veteran manager did make a thinly-veiled attack on Chelsea for the style of football they play.
"Some people say we've got 50 million fans, or 500 million. But whatever the numbers, one thing I know is we've got our support because we entertain," he continued.
"We always have and it is a great history in this club."
