Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed which two of his former England teammates, both of whom are former Manchester United stars, he hated during his playing days.

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see which two England stars Gerrard hated, as reported by Manchester Evening News.

The 37-year-old made 114 appearances for the Three Lions but retired from international football after England's embarrassing group stage exit at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Gerrard, who spent his most of his career at Liverpool before joining Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy, has now explained why he felt hatred towards two England stars who played for Manchester United at the time.

"When you're lining up in the tunnel against Rio (Ferdinand) and Gary Neville, you want to do everything in your power to beat them, there's hatred there, that's exactly how it is," he told Manchester Evening News.

"When you meet up for England at that time, you pretend you like them, but your career finishes, their career finishes and your friendship starts for real.

"I've got nothing but respect for Rio as a player, he played for a top club all his life, he's a good fella as well. I’m enjoying the role at BT (Sport, for whom they are both pundits) with him as well."
