Wigan boss Bruce warns Liverpool over chasing Man Utd

Former Manchester United skipper, and now Wigan boss Steve Bruce, has warned Liverpool that it could take them years to break Manchester United's stranglehold on the Barclays Premier League. He said: "When we were chasing for the title back in the 80s and 90s, it was always Liverpool we were chasing because they always seemed to win it.

"Now Liverpool are in the same position, and they have got to overtake a really young, vibrant Manchester United to win the title. They may look at that team and wish there was some old ones in it!

"But they will keep trying, Liverpool demands that, but it will be very, very difficult for them to overtake United again.

"United tried for 26 years without winning the title, and now they have won it so many times since and look likely to do it again now. The first time is always the most difficult after so long."
