It’s not a friendly game. We want to beat Liverpool – Manchester United star sends warning

Manchester United

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has sent a warning to Liverpool ahead of Tuesday’s pre-season game in Thailand.

According to Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United players want to beat Liverpool and don’t consider the game a friendly game.

“We know what that kind of game means to our fans,” Fernandes said.

“Obviously, this is the first game of pre-season but anywhere you want to win, and you want to win these kind of games too, even if it’s a friendly match.

“As I said many times, we can never have a friendly match. As much as it doesn’t count for points or going through some stages, at the same point, we want to win the game.

“Obviously, we want to get the shape and start to do what the coach asks of us.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed the advantage that Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United team have over his Liverpool team.

Klopp claims Manchester United have an edge over Liverpool because Ten Hag’s side have trained a little longer.

“Manchester United. New manager. Trained a little bit longer than us. Not sure, but might be in a better situation in the moment,” Klopp said. 

“We see it as an important test because it’s against United – and we don’t play friendlies!

“Usually football matches are the most important thing for us. But in this specific case it’s really more for the people.

“We have 37 players – all generations here – and we have to use all of them. 

“The boys who were on international duty in the summer only arrived today pretty much. They cannot play too long but we will try to give them a few minutes as well.”
