Gary Neville relished Manchester United’s rivalry with Liverpool as a player and he admits it could be an intimidating atmosphere at Anfield.
Having spent 19 years in United’s first team before retiring in 2011, Neville experienced plenty of fierce battles with Liverpool – and was more often than not on the winning side.
The former England full-back was certainly not a popular figure among Liverpool supporters, and earned a £10,000 fine in 2006 for celebrating Rio Ferdinand’s late winner to run the length of the pitch to taunt the Reds fans.
And Neville has revealed just how intimidating playing at Liverpool’s home could be for a United player in an interview with Soccer Am.
