Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that games against Manchester City and Liverpool are what worry him the most.
Despite Jose Mourinho’s failings against Chelsea this season, Ferguson has admitted that he’s only worried when his side faces Liverpool and City.
“The only time I get a bit anxious is when we play Liverpool and Manchester City because those are the biggest games,” he told Sirius XM.
“The thing about English football is the tribalism.
“You’ve got the London clubs, the Midlands clubs and the Yorkshire clubs. That creates a real competitive edge to matches.
“But nothing compares to the Liverpool game. Of course, Manchester City now have risen to a very prominent position in the game and those games have become very important, too.”
Ironically, he looks tenser and disappointed when United play against Chelsea, not forgetting that he has also had a lot to say about Chelsea since the beginning of the season.
