Man Utd great Sir Alex: I'm glad I retired before Klopp joined Liverpool!

Manchester United managerial great Sir Alex Ferguson admits he's happy he retired before Jurgen Klopp took charge of Liverpool.

The two sides meet again on Sunday in a clash which could provide a strong indication of United's title credentials this season, amid doubts over their ability to last the course.

"United against Liverpool is the game of the season - the most successful sides in the country," he said during a 'talk with legends' where Klopp was present.

"I had to build a club not just a team to surpass them.

"Thank goodness I've retired, because when I see Liverpool's performances over the last two seasons - phenomenal."
