Gabriel Heinze will watch his former Manchester United team-mates take on Liverpool on Sunday despite still being angry at his denied move to Merseyside.

The former Red Devils defender was refused a transfer to Liverpool in the summer and eventually made the move to Real Madrid.

The 29-year-old is enjoying his now enjoying his football in Spain but still feels resentful over the transfer saga.

"I still do not understand the real motives of United and think the whole thing set a bad example for football," he told the Daily Mail.

"It is incredible that in the modern age - in the 21st century - there exists a situation where United will not sell to Liverpool.


"I only have good memories of the supporters and my team-mates but I would rather not give my opinion about the directors.

"I really wanted to play for Liverpool but it is forgotten.

"During the summer I dreamed of playing in Anfield but the reality was different."

Heinze has revealed that he would welcome the chance to face Manchester United in Europe with Real Madrid and believes there is only one outcome.

He added: "I don't think often about revenge but it is certain that I want to play against Manchester United in the Champions League.

"That would be a big match and one without a clear favourite. But I would fancy Real.

"Manchester United never believed a big-name club would ever want me but I have proved them wrong and now I can't ask for anything more.

"This has just begun and there's a lot more to lay on the line."
