More complicated than hate - Neville opens up on United-Liverpool rivalry

  |   Football / La Liga / FA Cup / EPL / ISL / UEFA

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville said he would happily break the bank just so he could celebrate in front of the Liverpool supporters again, as he reflected on the fierce rivalry between the two Premier League giants.

Neville in his illustrious one-club career spanning 19 years enjoyed some tense and fierce encounters with the Reds. "It's different from Arsenal. It's different from Chelsea. It's even different from [Manchester] City, at least for me. It's almost an out-of-body experience," Neville wrote about the rivalry in a popular newspaper based in London.

Neville continued: "I used to say I hated Liverpool, but I've softened a little bit. Now, I'd say it's more complicated than just hate. Whenever I'm asked if I'm sorry for celebrating in front of the Liverpool fans back in 2006, my answer is the same every time: of course not."
