Didi Hamann, one of the best to play for Liverpool in the Premier League era, has given comments ahead of the Reds Old Trafford clash on Sunday afternoon…
Not only does the German midfielder think Jose Mourinho’s side will win, but he’d prefer to play for the Portuguese over his countryman and Liverpool favourite Jurgen Klopp!
“I think Manchester United have found a bit of form in recent weeks and seem to be a lot more settled and the camp is a lot more happy than they were at the start of the season,” he told Sky Sports.
“And in [Sadio] Mane, one of the most influential forward players will be missing for Liverpool.
“So I think United, who nullified Liverpool very well the first time they played at Anfield, may have the edge on Sunday.”
“I always like distance between a manager and a player. I don’t like it when managers get too close and too pally with the players. From that perspective, I think I’d rather play for Mourinho. I always wanted somebody who tells players and teams what he wants to do.
“Jurgen Klopp has got a different take and I think now things have changed.
“But I would have liked to have played for both,” Hamann added!
United are in a great run of form, but Liverpool performances against the Premier League’s best sides this season prove they can extremely dangerous for Mourinho’s man.
