Gerrard Backs Fiercest Rivals

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has surprisingly revealed he hopes Manchester United beat Barcelona in Wednesday’s Champions League final.

Speaking to local press, Gerrard said: “I hope it’s a very good game from a neutral point of view,”
“I’ll be watching the game and hope there is a lot of entertainment. It’s obviously a difficult question. But I’ve got a lot of good friends who play for Manchester United so I hope they win, although obviously I’m sitting on the fence.”
Liverpool and Manchester United share one of the greatest and fiercest rivalries in English football, but it seems Gerrard’s affinity for some of his England colleagues such as Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand have led him to back the English league champions.
