Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says he is hoping 'something stupid' happens to Manchester City to gift his team the Premier League title.
City host QPR on Sunday, needing to match or better United's result against Sunderland to win the Premier League.
'We can only do our best and try to win the match and hope something stupid happens with City,' said Ferguson.
'It's fantastic for the neutral, fantastic for the media, but agony for both clubs.'
Ferguson added: 'The attitude will be that City have to win but it's an enormous challenge for them too.
'The disappointment of losing the game would be unbelievable. It's untold what effect it could have on them.'
Ferguson also criticised the manner of how current QPR manager Mark Hughes left Manchester City halfway through the 2009-10 season. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/man_city/8422676.stm
Hughes played for United under Ferguson, who said: 'The way he [Hughes] was sacked was terrible. That was the general opinion by everyone. I think his wife knew before him'.
