Man City will be hoping to follow-up their 3-0 win over Stoke in the Premier League back in October when the pair meet again this Saturday lunchtime.

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has ruled out coaching a British team at the 2012 London Olympics.

The 67-year-old held informal talks last year about the role with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and London 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe, but said he does not want another job.

“No. I won’t turn to international management,” Ferguson said Friday in the club’s magazine, Inside United. “When I’ve finished here, I think I deserve a rest. After here, I’m finished.”

Ferguson, who would be 70 when the Olympics begin, is not convinced there will be a combined British team at the games.

Despite assurances from FIFA, the football associations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland fear that their independent status in the world game would be jeopardized if they agree to take part.
