Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has questioned a Manchester United fan’s bitterness with the Reds dominating the Premier League.
Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top of the table before the coronavirus outbreak put a halt to football in England.
There are fears that the season may never resume, potentially denying the Anfield outfit their first ever Premier League title.
A league trophy was last at Liverpool in 1990 while Manchester United have won the title 13 times since then.
But it has been doom and gloom in recent years at Old Trafford while Liverpool have gone from strength to strength.
Klopp appeared on a podcast for JD Sports, hosted by Manchester United fan Chuckie Online.
In his intro, Chuckie admitted it was bittersweet to be talking to Klopp regarding the success, though the Reds boss was unaware of where the presenter’s allegiances lie.
Klopp said: “I’m good but what is the bitter part of this memory? You are a supporter of which club?”

And when told the presenter is a Manchester United fan, Klopp responded: “You had 30 good years and you have like three or four not so good, and that’s, wow…”
Klopp’s Liverpool have lost just one Premier League match this season, winning a remarkable 27 of their 29 games.
And while the coronavirus outbreak may stop the Reds lifting the title, Klopp knows that football sometimes has to take a backseat.
The German recently said: “I’ve said before that football always seems the most important of the least important things. Today, football and football matches really aren’t important at all.
“Of course, we don’t want to play in front of an empty stadium and we don’t want games or competitions suspended, but if doing so helps one individual stay healthy – just one – we do it no questions asked.
“If it’s a choice between football and the good of the wider society, it’s no contest. Really, it isn’t.”
