Over the past years, the rivalry between two of English football’s most successful clubs; Manchester United and Liverpool has been a thrilling one. It has involved a lot of clashes and player rivalries but things have changed quite a bit in recent times because City have become the bigger club from Manchester in the recent years. This has been as a result of United largely spending the last couple of seasons delivering somewhat underwhelming and unconvincing performances that have seen them fail to win the English Premier League title in almost ten years now since Sir Alex Ferguson last did so and retired back in 2013.

The Manchester United vs Liverpool fixture has witnessed a lot of great players in the past, including Cristiano Ronaldo (during his first stint), Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Carlos Tevez, the Neville Brothers, and many more. There was always something to look forward to whenever this fixture was fast approaching as it always promised some fierce atmosphere and some heated scenes as well.

That rivalry among the players of old looks set to be reignited after it was confirmed that the two clubs’ legends will be having a match against each other in May later this year. The match was confirmed by both clubs via their respective social media platforms and fans are already looking forward to it even though it would not be seen as a competitive match.

The game will feature past players of both Manchester United and Liverpool and the 21st of May has been slated as the date when it will be played. Even thkihh it won’t be a competitive match, it is set to renew some old rivalry as it is what the fixture is always about.
