Manchester United legend Gary Neville aims dig at Liverpool after Premier League heartbreak

Former Manchester United right-back Gary Neville has set his sights on a cheeky dig at rivals Liverpool after the Red Devils lost the Premier League title to Manchester City. He posted a photo on Twitter of himself with Sir Alex Ferguson after United’s UEFA Champions League win in 1999. Neville captioned it:

“They will try for a long time son to do what we just did”

“They will try for a long time son to do what we just did”

This has to do with Manchester United’s 1998-99 treble win, of which Neville was a part. They won the Premier League when they were only one point ahead of second-placed Arsenal. They beat Newcastle United in the FA Cup final. The Red Devils then made an unbelievable comeback against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final. Leading 2-1, they scored twice in injury time to complete the treble.

Liverpool have come close to the treble this season after winning the FA Cup on May 14. They are just one point behind Manchester City ahead of the final day of the Premier League. The Red Devils won against Wolverhampton Wanderers with a score of 3-1.

However, Man City kept their title with an excellent comeback against Aston Villa. They led 2-0 until the 75th minute before scoring three goals to win the title with one point.

Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the Stade de France on May 28.


Contrasting results between Liverpool and Manchester United on the last day of the Premier League

It was a contrasting season for both teams. The Reds chased a four while United chased some pride. The Reds have won two trophies, while United completed a fifth consecutive season without a title.

On the final day of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s men need Aston Villa to get a positive result against Manchester City at the Etihad. Villans tried their best, leading 2-0 until 75 minutes. Ilkay Gundogan’s brace in front of Rodri’s goal, however, helped City keep the title.

Manchester United, meanwhile, need to win a game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to qualify for next season’s Europa League. They lost 1-0 but seventh-placed West Ham United also beat Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1, securing United’s place in the Europa League.
