Manchester United Fan Wins £36,000 On Liverpool Premier League Bet

Manchester United Fan Wins £36,000 On Liverpool Premier League Bet

By Mike Parrott

A lifelong Manchester United won £36,000 on a bet he made back in October after betting that Liverpool would win the Premier League. The 4/6 odds were in his favour.

Betting is normally skewed by the team you normally support.

The idea of betting against your team is a very hard one and will get into most people's heads when it comes to betting on football.

However, Tony Ward, a Manchester United fan for decades actually bet on long-term rivals Liverpool to win the Premier League back in October 2019 on a 4/6 odds bet.

Liverpool's success, sealed after Manchester City draw with Chelsea last month, means Mr Ward is now £36,000 richer.

Mr Ward bet the inheritance money he received after his mother Rose passed away in 2017.

And despite his allegiance to United, seeing Liverpool open up a lead last year was just too tempting for him.

"Liverpool were always looking like they could win the title. I picked them after a long, long debate...It was a two-horse race between them and Manchester City, as far as I was concerned."

'I'm an armchair supporter, really - I've actually been fan of Manchester United since I was a kid!"

Tony, who used to work in a rival bookmakers but stopped before the lockdown, placed his bet at a local Ladbrokes branch on October 9. However, the suspension of the league due to the Coronavirus pandemic but his bet in danger of not happening.

He said:

"I would have got my stake back, I think, if the season had been cancelled. But that would have been unfair...Liverpool were that far clear. They only needed six points."

"They had to play Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the two games after [the bet was placed]...I thought that if they could get through them I was going to win."
