It is no news that European heavyweights Liverpool (18-time English champions) and 5-time European champions) and Manchester United (20-time English champions) and 3-time European champions) are the most successful clubs in British football.

The fact that the two teams are staunch rivals is also no news going by their immense history however what is new is the admission of a Liverpool legend that he could have managed Manchester United.

Former Liverpool player Graeme Souness, who is now a pundit with popular media outfit Sky Sports, recently admitted that he could have been a manager at Old Trafford in 1989.

63-year old Souness enjoyed a stellar career with Liverpool in the 80s winning the old First Division on five occasions in addition 4 League Cup triumphs and 3 European Cup titles.

The former Blackburn Rovers boss also won the FA Cup there as a manager however it could have been a different ball game entirely if the attempted takeover of the club by Michael Knighton saw the light of the day.

Confirming the surprising news to Daily Mail, Graeme Souness said: “Fergie was having a difficult time and the banners were up in the Stretford End.”

“I was manager of Rangers but I would have gone there. Damn right. I was flying.” he concluded.
