Gary Neville recently joked that he will have to move to Papua New Guinea if Liverpool win the Premier League this season.
The thought of seeing Jurgen Klopp hoist the trophy at the end of the season is too much for many Manchester United supporters to deal with.
They love the fact that Liverpool have never won the Premier League and that their 18 league titles falls short of Man United’s 20.
But there’s a genuine possibility that the Reds will soon end their long wait to win the title.
Klopp’s side have a six-point lead at the top of the table and they can extend that to nine with a win against Manchester City on Thursday evening.
Victory over Pep Guardiola’s team would end the title race in the minds of many observers.
As crazy as it seems, there are Man United supporters out there who want Man City to beat Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium and go on to claim the title ahead of the Merseyside outfit.
Man United fans are worried about Liverpool
talkSPORT decided to compile some of the calls they’ve received from Man United fans who can’t stand the idea of Liverpool winning the league.
One fan even says he’ll emigrate if Klopp’s men do it.
“I’m on my way to the Etihad to get a City shirt,” another one says.
Check out the clip below.
The clip shows just how intense the rivalry between the two clubs is. Man United fans are genuinely scared that this could be Liverpool’s year.
That would make it 19 league titles for Liverpool and they’d probably be the favourites to make it 20 - and tie Manchester United - in the 2019-20 campaign.
The reaction from Man United supporters if that happened would be simply incredible.
Papua New Guinea? Neville would have to go much further away than that.
He and the other concerned Man United fans can only hope that Jose Mourinho's departure paves the way for the Red Devils to sort themselves out and challenge Liverpool and City for future titles.News Now - Sport News
