Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has only ever scored once at Anfield, and will be attempting to break his decade-long drought on Merseyside this weekend, reports CaughtOffside.
United boss Louis van Gaal said: “It’s strange because I’m not superstitious, so we have to change that feeling also with Wayne. I have grounds where I never won as a manager or a player with a certain club. But then with another club I always won, for example.
“It’s strange but it can be like this – and I hope I can change it with Wayne. It can be (a mental thing), I cannot deny that, but I don’t think that Wayne has a block of that, no.
“He’s a very experienced player, he has played on all the grounds in the world so I don’t think that he shall be influenced by the fans at by the stadium or something like that.
“But Liverpool, for Manchester United, is not a very easy ground. But now I’m the manager here maybe we can change that.”
