Ahead of this weekend’s game against Liverpool, Paul Scholes has said that despite the lack of success they’ve seen since their last title, an incredible 23 years ago, they are still bigger rivals than Manchester City.
“I think it was the top one for quite some while,” Scholes told Inside United. “Liverpool probably haven’t done as well as they’d have liked over the last few years – and they’d probably admit that. But it’s definitely still right up there, it’ll always be right up there. Whether Manchester City have overtaken Liverpool now, I don’t know…it’ll probably take years for City to create what Liverpool have done. But Liverpool historically are our biggest rivals, they’re always the biggest games and the best atmospheres. But I’m sure City will run them close.”
