Liverpool and Manchester United's rivalry goes a long way, back in 1990 Liverpool fans taunted Manchester United to go on and surpass Liverpool's record of 18 Premier League titles which Manchester United finally surpassed in 2011, much to the dismay of Liverpool fans. Familiarity breeds contempt and whenever these two sides meet, the tempestuousness is automatically turned to 11.
It's said that you can leave a football club but the football club never leaves you and quite rightly so. When you join a football club, it becomes a part of your identity and you cannot help but be turned into a fan of that particular club. Gerrard, Carragher, Fowler etc all are still avid Liverpool supporters while Neville, Giggs, Schmeichel etc are all Man Utd supporters.
But what happens when an ex-Liverpool superstar meets an ex-Manchester United superstar? Fireworks! And that's exactly what happened when Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid met Fernando Torres' Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals. What's more interesting is that once upon a time, both were considered the two best players on the planet! The two were exchanged in a heated bust-up during the game.
