Both Liverpool and Leeds United have bigger rivals, but on account of being one of the most historic clubs around, there has always been some friction between the two.
In the mid-to-late 1960s, Liverpool and Leeds began a rise which would eventually see both clubs reach their peaks with Leeds being the dominant force in England under the tutelage of Don Reeve.
Elland road was absolutely rocking in the good old glory days and apparently even Liverpool players were left in awe of the atmosphere at the iconic stadium.
Former Reds defender Phil Thompson had only good things to say about the famous stadium during his bit for Sky Sports on Friday.
The legend was seen absolutely beaming talking about Elland road and even went on to name the stadium as the best he’s played at ahead of Old Trafford and Goodison Park.
