United and City come together in love for Manchester after riots, reports Manchester Evening News.

Sir Alex Ferguson led the rallying cry as his stars signed up for the I Love MCR campaign. Boxer Amir Khan, Manchester City stars Mario Balotelli and Sergio Aguero, music legends Peter Hook and Clint Boon and design guru Peter Saville joined the thousands of people backing the city’s fightback after the Manchester riots.

The legendary United boss told the M.E.N. that the city would bounce back better than ever after it was ransacked by thugs last week.

Man United I Love MCR tshirts

United first-teamers Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Fabio, Jonny Evans and Darren Fletcher all donned ‘I Love MCR’ T-shirts in a show of support.

The Blues players donned the official I Love MCR t-shirts as they warmed up at the Etihad Stadium for their match last night – with Balotelli adding his own touch by adding the word ‘City’. The club’s new Argentinian star signing Aguero also showed solidarity with his new home. City fans have also launched their own version of the I Love MCR emblem – featuring a blue rather than red heart.
