Stop the hostility - Fergusson's peace call after the release of the Hillsborough documents

Following the release of the "Hillsborough documents" (which cleared Liverpool fans of any blame in the terrible incident) this week, Sir Alex Ferguson has called for an end to hostility between Manchester United and Liverpool. The club's bitter rivalry has run its course both on and off the pitch, but Ferguson is keen for a better relationship to form between the two clubs.

"We are two great clubs, ourselves and Liverpool" Ferguson said, "We should understand each other's problems. Maybe a line will be drawn in the sand in terms of their (the fans) behaviour towards each other".

Liverpool take on United at Anfield in next week's Premier League clash, where last year Liverpool's striker Luis Suarez was banned for 8 matches after racially abusing United's Evra.

Fergusson's aim is clear, but what happens will ultimately be down to the players and fans alike.
