Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has why he detest his side’s old enemy Liverpool more than city rivals Manchester City, the Mirror reports.
Rashford, who has spent his entire career at Old Trafford, has been speaking about the rivalries United have with local foe Manchester City and Liverpool.
There has been plenty of debate in recent years over who has the bigger rivalry with United.
Rashford, 24, frankly stated that he does not like Liverpool or City and claimed that the rivalry United have with the Reds is more bitter due to the long history between the two clubs.
Speaking with Liverpool fan and NBA superstar LeBron James on Uniterrupted, Rashford said that the animosity with the Anfield club feels more intense than it does with City.
“Liverpool. I don’t like Liverpool, and City,” said Rashford. “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.
“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.”
Rashford went on to speak about Anfield when asked about grounds he both loves and hates visiting. The 46-cap England international confessed the Reds’ support has a big impact when they are playing at their 53,000-seater ground.
“Liverpool is like both,” Rashford added. “Their fans can take the game away from you. If you let them, they can take it away from you.
“My first game at Anfield, I almost got sent off straight away and I’m not a malicious player – I wouldn’t try and hurt someone on purpose.”
