Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson insists there is no need for conciliatory talks with Liverpool over the Luis Suarez racism row.
Suarez was banned for eight matches after being found guilty of racially abusing United's French defender at Anfield in October.
Liverpool have defended the Uruguayan striker throughout the investigation into the incident but have decided not to appeal against the FA ban, with Suarez set to return for the game at United on February 11.
It has been reported that Liverpool officials are seeking talks with United counterparts in an attempt to calm tensions ahead of the game at Old Trafford.
Ferguson said: "It's nice to do it through the press, you'd have thought they'd have come to Manchester United. But I don't see why there's any need for that to be honest and I've nothing to say about it."
