Frenchman Louis Saha has revealed the best memory from the Manchester United v Liverpool games that he played during his successful football career. The former French national team striker spoke to Sportsmail about the fixture regarded as the biggest in English football.

Louis Saha talked about the iconic fixture just before the two teams met in the Premier League recently. According to him, his best memorywas in the 2006/07 season when John O’shea scored a last-minute winner at Anfield, the home of Liverpool. The Frenchman said he knew that his team would win the league title that season.

Saha was introduced late into the game by legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson. According to him, the late win over Liverpool proved to be the catalyst that Manchester United needed to win the league title ahead of Chelsea. The Red Devils were able to reclaim the title from the Blues who had won the last two editions. They had not won the title for three seasons before the 2006/07 campaign.

Louis Saha spent over four years at Manchester United between 2004 and 2008. He was involved in the iconic fixture with Liverpool five times without finding the back of the net.

Ex-Fulham and Totttenham Hotspur striker Saha also talked about Manchester United dropping down to the Europa League from the Champions League. On the opinion that the club belongs to the Champions League rather than the Europa League, Saha said that it doesn’t matter before adding that the current set of players would gain confidence from winning trophies like the Europa League.

Manchester United have not won any form of major trophy in four years and they have the chance to make that right in the Europa League final next week. The Red Devils will need to see off Spanish La Liga club Villarreal to win the competition.
