The England star claimed there’s no real reason to dislike Pep Guardiola’s men – but said he was not a fan of City either.
Marcus Rashford expresses his dislike for Liverpool during an episode of UNINTERRUPTED
The England forward says that the history between United and Liverpool makes it a big rivalry
Rashford was in conversation with some big hitters, including NBA icon LeBron James
Instead, Rashford admits that he directs his dislike at United’s old foes Liverpool and puts the rivalry down to the bitter history that exists between the two clubs.
‘Yeah, Liverpool. I don’t like Liverpool. City. Liverpool have history, so it’s a bit more bitter,’ Rashford said during the show.
‘But with City, it’s like you don’t like them, but you don’t have a massive reason not to like them.
‘You just grow up, and it’s two Manchester sides. One wears light blue; one wears red.’
Manchester United beat Liverpool in a pre-season clash this week during their pre-season tour
Rashford will be hoping for better success for United against Liverpool in the new campaign
Rashford singled out Anfield when asked about which grounds he dislikes visiting the most in the Premier League.
The forward has scored four goals against the Reds in his career, but is yet to find the net at the home of Jurgen Klopp’s men.
‘Liverpool is like both,’ said Rashford. ‘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.’
Anfield hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Rashford, including the 4-0 defeat last season
Manchester United faced Liverpool earlier this week during their pre-season tour in Thailand, where Erik Ten Hag’s side beat the Premier League runners-up 4-0.
The friendly result was a far cry from United’s recent form against their arch-rivals. Last season they suffered humiliation at Old Trafford as Liverpool ran riot with a 5-0 win – which included a hat-trick for Mohammed Salah.
The Red Devils didn’t fair much better in the return fixture either as they were soundly beaten 4-0 at Anfield.
