Sir Alex Ferguson endured a difficult 90 minutes at Anfield on Sunday evening as his former club Manchester United slumped to a 3-1 loss to Liverpool FC.
The Manchester United legend managed to end Liverpool FC’s dominance of domestic football during his decorated 25-year reign at Old Trafford, winning 13 Premier League titles.
Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool FC have managed to rebuild and have made giant strides forward with some exciting football as Manchester United continue to decline under Jose Mourinho.
Sadio Mane broke the deadlock in the 34th minute with a superb volley before Alisson Becker’s handling error allowed Jesse Lingard to equalise ahead of half-time.
Manchester United haven’t lost a Premier League game at Anfield since Mourinho took over the reins of the Old Trafford outfit from Louis van Gaal in May 2016.
However, Klopp’s substitute Xherdan Shaqiri scored twice in seven minutes to help Liverpool FC secure three points and hoist themselves to the top of the table.
Ferguson was sat alongside former Manchester United chief executive David Gill at Anfield, while in close vicinity, Sir Bobby Charlton was accompanied by current vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
And the Scottish legend didn’t look to be in a good mood when Ferguson was caught on camera in the dying embers of Manchester United’s 3-1 loss at Liverpool FC.
Ferguson has previously spoken of his concern about the German’s potential impact at the 18-time English champions.
“He has done a really good job and revived Liverpool’s enthusiasm,” Ferguson said in 2016. “It can happen that big clubs lose it. For two decades, Liverpool changed managers without building their own identity.
“You can now well and truly sense that you have to count them in this year. You can see Klopp’s dedication on the sideline, I’m convinced his work in training is similar. He’s a strong personality. That’s absolutely vital at a big club.
“I’m worried about him because the one thing United don’t want is Liverpool to get above us.”
