Sir Alex Ferguson: 'I still hate losing to Manchester City and Liverpool'

Sir Alex Ferguson admits that he still hates seeing Manchester United lose to their bitter rivals Manchester City and Liverpool despite leaving his post as manager.

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he still hates it when Manchester United lose to Liverpool or Manchester City.

The Red Devils lost all four of their fixtures against their most bitter rivals in the Premier League last season, and even though the Scot is no longer the club's manager, he has admitted that he still gets annoyed when they taste defeat.

Ferguson told MUTV: "I got annoyed when we lost to Liverpool last year. I didn't enjoy that. I don't like losing to Liverpool and Manchester City last year, because they are your biggest rivals and the ones you always strive to defeat and are always in our way. Particularly Liverpool, of course.

"The way I've always been and I did it as a manager, I'm actually quite stone-faced watching a game. I don't try to show any emotions unless we score.

"I always celebrate a goal, even now as a director I still celebrate a goal. You're always conscious maybe the cameras are on you and this is happening quite a lot."

United have lost twice this season under Louis van Gaal, and are currently fourth in the Premier League.
