Man Utd legend Alex Ferguson forgets rivalry with Kenny Dalglish as he congratulates Liverpool icon after title win – The Sun

SIR ALEX FERGUSON put his rivalry with Kenny Dalglish aside to congratulate the Liverpool icon after the Reds first Premier League title win.

The legendary Manchester United manager came up against Dalglish several times while the ex-striker was in charge at Anfield and Blackburn.

But Dalglish, now a non-executive director at Liverpool, revealed Fergie was quick to congratulate him after Jurgen Klopp's men were officially crowned champions – their first title in 30 years.

He said: "He has contacted us to say congratulations by the modern medium!

"You go through the older generation, Fergie at Man United, Brian Kidd, Mike Summerbee, all the old foes who went through football at the same time and at the end of the year you sent a letter of congratulations.

"That continues. It is a great compliment. You are in competition and you are rivals but to have the intelligence so you are magnanimous enough to send in a letter saying congratulations.

"These days it has gone more technical, you get your texts or emails off the people who you have been competing with all your life.

"They wish it was themselves who won it but they are proud to pay homage to other people."

Liverpool were officially champions after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1, as fans celebrated around Merseyside.

Kop boss Klopp burst into tears as he dedicated the title win to Anfield legends Dalglish and Steven Gerrard.
