Rory McIlroy, currently ranked number two worldwide, and Tyrrell Hatton (number 12), had a close view of the scoreless draw between the Reds and Manchester United. Rory is a passionate supporter of Manchester.

The British duo was welcomed by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher and posed on the pitch with the Ryder Cup trophy. The images of the golfers on the field went viral, spreading worldwide.

"The last time I was here for Liverpool-Manchester United at Anfield was in 2007.

Manchester won with a last-minute goal by John O'Shea. It's true that Manchester United is not in great form, but this is a common challenge in golf, as I have experienced with Hatton. It only takes a spark to reignite the fire, and I hope it comes soon," commented McIlroy.

Aberg's presence (currently ranked 32nd in the world) was only documented in a photo released by Liverpool.

The Swedish newcomer was accompanied by his father. Manchester United Football Club known simply as Manchester United, is an English football club based in the city of Manchester. It has played in the Premier League, the top flight of the English football championship, since 1975.
