TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan believes Manchester United are still a 'bigger' club than Liverpool despite their struggles in the Premier League

Simon Jordan on Manchester United and Liverpool supremacy

Liverpool arch rivals Manchester United have struggled measured to the years since Sir Alex Ferguson left the Old Trafford club.

Nine years since the Ferguson retired, United have been through five different managers, with Erik Ten Hag the sixth manager to be handed the opportunity to guide the Red Devils back on track after a barren spell of success over the past decade.

On the other hand, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp has overseen a prolonged period of success at Anfield as he's managed to record Champions League and Premier League triumphs in recent years. That's not at all, the German has also added an additional four trophies to the two landmark successes, swinging the major trophy count back in the Reds' favour (67-66).

However, despite the success under the German, former Crystal Palace chairman Jordan believes Manchester United are still the biggest club in England, as proven by the media attention the club demands on a day-to-day basis regardless of their on-field success.

"Manchester United, globally, are a bigger club than Liverpool," said Jordan. "Liverpool stole a march on modern football by dominating the 70s and 80s but when the Premier League came around, who were the poster boys of the Premier League? Coincidentally, Manchester United.

He added: "Name me another club that has such a good and bad level of interest like United. And that drives eyes on the prize. They go and do deals. They don't have to go to Etihad, a company they already own, to get a £50 million pound shirt deal. They go to TeamViewer or to Chevrolet."
