DC United striker, Wayne Rooney, has stated that he cannot bear the thought of Liverpool winning the Premier League title this season.

Rooney, who began his career with Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals, Everton, before moving to Manchester United, said he would rather have the defending champions Manchester City win the league.

Liverpool are top of the table with two points more than second-placed City, who have a game in hand.

“It’s a great reason to be out the country when those two are going head-to-head for the title.

“I hope Man City get over the line before Liverpool. 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,” Rooney told talkSPORT
