Ferguson offered United chance
Sir Alex Ferguson could deliver Manchester United's team talk ahead of the Liverpool clash, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The eyes of the footballing world will be on Old Trafford this weekend as the home side look to continue their impressive form and derail Jurgen Klopp's Reds' title tilt.
United are going for a 12th win in 14 matches in all competitions and remain unbeaten in nine league matches, having last tasted defeat at Anfield in December - a 3-1 loss that brought the end of Jose Mourinho's reign.
United recovered from their first defeat under Solskjaer, against PSG in the Champions League, by comfortably triumphing 2-0 in Monday's FA Cup fifth-round match at Chelsea.
Ferguson was seen speaking to some United players after that match at Stamford Bridge and has been offered a wider audience ahead of the Liverpool clash.
Asked if the mind games used by his mentor were something he bought into as a manager, Solskjaer said: "Nah. I don't think Jurgen Klopp will read what I say.
"I'm not going to read what he says, or the players say. That's further down the line I would think.
"But (Ferguson) would be welcome to have his talk to the players if he wanted to, the gaffer, because we know how much it meant for him to overtake Liverpool.
"I think our players know what it means for everyone at Man United."
