He claims that lesser teams might have been damaged by the impact of losing the title, as Liverpool were in 2008-2009. That season we were chasing our 18th title whilst they were chasing their 19th. Since losing out to us and finish 2nd that season they have finished 7th, 6th, 8th and are currently 7th.
United now have a record breaking 20 titles whilst Liverpool are still on 18 with their last league win coming an incredible 23 years ago.
“I think that just shows the resilience and the attitude in the squad that the manager has instilled in us,” he added. “A lot of other teams would probably have fallen away. We played Liverpool a couple of seasons ago when they were fighting for the title, we beat them and got to the league before them and they’ve not been seen since. That shows the mentality and character that this club has.”
