Sir Alex Ferguson was on hand to give the Manchester United team some advice ahead of this Saturday’s clash with Liverpool.
The legendary Red Devils boss, who famously made it his mission to knock Liverpool “off their perch”, masterminded more than a few wins over the Merseyside giants in his time.
It’s clear he still regards the game – as do many Manchester United fans – to be the biggest fixture of the club’s domestic season.
And he was only too happy to give Jose Mourinho’s side some tips ahead of the must-win match at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
According to the Daily Mail, Ferguson met up with the Manchester United players at the Lowry Hotel on the eve of the clash.
There he gave them tips as they set about making their final preparations for the game, which is the Premier League’s early kick-off on Saturday.
The two sides drew 0-0 in their first game this season at Anfield, in what was a nervy affair between the bitter rivals.
Manchester United are without star man Paul Pogba for the clash, who has been ruled out of the fixture with a thigh injury.
The Frenchman picked up a thigh injury in training in the build up to the game and did not arrive with the rest of United’s squad at the Lowry.
Pogba is believed to have cancelled a planned social engagement after training in an attempt to recover for the visit of the Reds.
United also reserved a room for the Frenchman at The Lowry in the event he declared himself fit but Pogba is out of the game.
