Thank goodness I’ve retired – Alex Ferguson about Man Utd vs Liverpool match

On Sunday, Manchester United and Liverpool will face-off in the Premier League and Alex Ferguson is mindful of the challenge facing his former side.

“Thank goodness I’ve retired actually when I see Liverpool’s performance over the last two seasons – they’ve been phenomenal. I’ve got great respect for Liverpool, I always have,” said Alex Ferguson.

Legendary Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson joked that he was grateful to have retired because he didn’t have to go up against the “phenomenal” Liverpool side of Jurgen Klopp.

“I’ve always considered the Manchester United and Liverpool derby the game of the season,” said Ferguson, speaking in aid of Sports United Against Dementia and the League Managers’ Association’s charity In The Game.

“Quite simply, they are the two most successful teams in Britain when you add up all the trophies they’ve won together.”

“It’s obvious that you have to beat Liverpool to win anything. It’s similar to when I was at Aberdeen – you had to beat Rangers and Celtic to win anything and you can add a mental attitude to that.”

“In reality, it is the game. Liverpool’s success over the 70s and 80s was phenomenal.”

“To do that, I had to take a road that was always going to be difficult, it meant I had to wait in terms of building the club. Eventually, it turned out fantastically for us.”
