Marcus Rashford reveals to LeBron James his "bitter" Liverpool claim and Anfield confession

There is always an advantage to games played between the teams, despite the divergent fortunes of Liverpool and United in recent years and the matches with City assuming a higher priority in the framework of the Premier League season.

In the Premier League last season, Jurgen Klopp’s team humiliated the Red Devils both at home and away, putting pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at both meetings in Old Trafford and giving Ralf Rangnick a clear picture of the rebuilding task that was necessary following a 4-0 defeat at Anfield.

Derby matches often mean more for local players fortunate enough to be representing the team they have supported their entire lives, a sentiment which applies for both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Rashford. It should perhaps come as no surprise then that the latter is not fond of the Reds, having grown up understanding the significance of this heavyweight fixture.

Asked if there are any clubs he hates during an interview alongside Reds fan LeBron James with Uninterrupted, he said: “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. 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’s first encounter with Liverpool came during his breakout campaign of 2015–16, when he played for 45 minutes as his team suffered a 2-0 loss in the first leg of the Europa League Last 16 at Anfield. The England international acknowledged he has a love-hate connection with Anfield, the Reds’ home stadium that is frequently an unfavorable location for visiting players due to its intimidating atmosphere.

When asked if he preferred or despised visiting Liverpool, Rashford replied, “Liverpool is like both.” “Their fans can rob you of the game,” he continued. They have the power to take it from you if you allow them. I nearly had a straight red card in my first game at Anfield, but I’m not a cruel player and I wouldn’t intentionally want to damage someone.
