Top 10 Most Intense Rivalries In World Football

#10. Liverpool vs. Manchester United


The two most successful clubs in England would undoubtedly be rivals even if they weren’t so geographically close to one another. But Liverpool and Manchester United are close, just 30 miles away, which only adds to the bitter rivalry between the two sides. Liverpool and Manchester United have both enjoyed waves of domination in the past century. Liverpool dominated the 1970s and 1980s while Manchester United were the force in the 1990s and 2000s. There have been some great moments in this rivalry including the infamous “come back when you’ve won 18” banner held by the Liverpool and of course the reply from Manchester United fans when, in 2009, they did. This one has dropped off in recent seasons as the two sides have fallen down the leagues but with Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp in charge of the two clubs, expect fireworks next season.
