Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has spoken of his love of playing at Anfield and has called the occasion “special”.
Cole, who is the Premier League’s third all-time top scorer at the time of this writing, played for the Red Devils for seven years, winning five league titles and a Champions League, among other titles. His association with fellow forward Dwight Yorke was a notorious part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s winning 3-pointers in 1999.
The former England international scored four times against Liverpool during his time at Man Utd, with all four of those goals coming at Anfield.
Cole has spoken about the atmosphere at Anfield during a big game, calling it “special”.
Talking to Sky sportsCole said: “One of the best environments you can play against: Anfield, Manchester United, special, and I mean it’s special.
“I personally loved playing at Anfield. I loved playing there. It was just the atmosphere, we knew how great the game was. It was such a special, special game. It was a great game to play. “
Cole’s comments come ahead of one of the biggest meetings between Liverpool and Manchester United in recent years. On Sunday, the two bitter rivals collide, with the visitors currently three points ahead of the Reds at the top of the table.
This is the first season in more than a decade in which both sides seem like realistic contenders for the title. It promises to be an exciting accessory.
Unfortunately, the legendary Anfield atmosphere will not be present for the game as an increase in COVID-19 cases has kept all Premier League grounds closed for the time being.
