What? Do you think he should randomly rang up Sky or something and said this? He was obviously asked in an interview. If he was asked specifically if City were afraid of United, obviously he should say no. Regardless of whether they lift the trophy or not, the statement is still true. Even if they go on to drop points at Newcastle, and subsequently lose the league, the statement that they are not afraid of United is still true. What's the problem? He said absolutely nothing wrong.
