If you think rivalries would be any less heated in a youth game, then you’re in for a rude awakening.
Manchester United youngsters made history against Wigan Athletic U-18s as they qualified for the FA Youth Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2012.
The topsy-turvy nature of the match saw some decent performances from the goalscorers Shola Shoretire, Ajodeji Sotona and the defender Teden Mengi.
However, it was the Liverpool born Sean McGurk who managed to occupy the heads of the United supporters.
Following an excellent strike in the first half which brought the Latics level, the 16-year-old had the audacity to run straight and shove six fingers at United fans, representing Liverpool’s six UCL titles.

Needless to say, this got the Old Trafford boiling with anger.
Later, with the things heating up, the Wigan striker was met with shrewd chants from the United faithful after his night on the pitch ended with an injury.
Peak trolling from both parties involved.
In the end the United boys claimed the victory via Sotona’s winner.
Nonetheless, this will be the moment from the game the Liverpool fans will be taking note of and who knows, Sean McGurk, who clearly seems to be a Liverpool fan, might become one for the future for the Reds.
