Marcus Rashford names Liverpool as one of the two clubs he hates amidst ‘history’ jibe at Manchester City

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford named Liverpool and Manchester City as the two clubs he hates. The rivalry with the Merseysiders is much more bitter due to the history between Man United and the Reds.

The Merseysiders and the Red Devils have one of the biggest rivalries in world football and often extend off the field as well. The North-West derby is one of the most awaited clashes in the English game.

Rashford knows that all too well. The two teams have been at it in Premier League football for decades. Speaking on Uninterrupted (h/t Liverpool Echo), The United forward feels the feud with City is just for the sake of being from the same area and doesn’t carry as much weight for him.

“Liverpool. I don’t like Liverpool, and City. Obviously Liverpool have history so it is a bit more bitter but, with City, it’s like you don’t like them but you don’t really have a massive reason not to like them.”

Liverpool and United are neck to neck when it comes to league titles in English football, with the Merseysiders on 19 and the Red Devils on 20. Even though we only have one Premier League title, historically, the Reds are one of the most successful clubs in England.

Players and fans alike have taken that saga forward no matter what the quality of the rival side. It’s always a special moment for both clubs to come up against each other.

Rashford acknowledges that and has grown up with that history being from Manchester himself. The city rivalry is a formality, but the inter-city one has much more to it.

“You just grow up and it’s two Manchester sides, one wears light blue and one wears red. But the rivalry with Liverpool, it feels much more.”

Most recently, Liverpool have had the upper hand in terms of success since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure and the appointment of Jurgen Klopp. The Reds have won a Champions League and the Premier League, while the Reds Devils have been unstable.

We’ve been one of the best sides in the world for a few years now. In the two most recent games between the two in the league, Liverpool scored nine goals and conceded none.
