I couldn’t bear to see them win it, it would be a nightmare for any Evertonian.”I remember in 2005 (Liverpool) won the Champions League and they’re still talking about it now so it would be another 10 or 15 years of that.”Liverpool have not won a league title in 29 years and ending that drought this season would allow them to move to 19 title wins in the English top flight, one behind United’s record.Also Read | Manchester United hit back at Barcelona over excessive ticket pricesFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
