Liverpool to face Man United in pre-season friendly in Bangkok1 min read
Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United will face off in a pre-season friendly in Bangkok.
The game will be played at the Rajamangala Stadium on July 12, where Jurgen Klopp’s men will battle the Red Devils for the Bangkok Century Cup.
It is the only pre-season fixture confirmed by Liverpool so far, but United announced they will also play Melbourne Victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on July 15, before facing more familiar opposition again in Crystal Palace at the same venue four days later.
The last time Liverpool and United played in a friendly was in 2018 and saw the Reds win 4-1 in front of more than 100,000 fans in Michigan as part of the International Champions Cup.
United will be hoping to have a new permanent manager installed by the time pre-season begins, with Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino among the favourites for the role, and the Liverpool fixture could be the first game for whomever is appointed.
