Ronaldo, Savage involved in an ugly spat

London, Feb 16 (ANI): Cristiano Ronaldo and Derbys Robbie Savage clashed in the first half at Pride Park on Sunday, and there was little sign of mutual respect.

Cristiano Ronaldo fired home a thunderous FA Cup header as Manchester United crushed Derby 4-1.

Then just like with Diego Maradonas Hand of God goal, Ronaldo was at the centre of a gob-smacking incident, The Sun reported.

Pictures seemed to show him spitting at Savage, though the Derby star insisted: Nothing happened.

If you have got pictures showing that sort of thing, it was definitely something I wasnt aware of. Ive got absolutely no problem with him, he added.

After a virtual second-string United line-up had beaten Derby to earn a trip to Fulham or Swansea, Rams chief Clough insisted United could complete a clean sweep of the major honours.

They have already won the World Club Championship and are targeting the Premier League, Champions League, FA and Carling Cups as well.

Clough said: It is on. If anyone can do it, United can. They made seven changes today but would have scored four against Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal or anyone playing like that. (ANI)
