Wayne Rooney could not bear to see Liverpool finish their long wait for a championship title.
The fan of the Everton fan, who played for the Toffees and for Manchester United, worries about his ears if the Reds win the Premier League because the fans still talk about their return against Milan 15 years later.
This is a two-horse race at the top like Liverpool, which won the last championship in 1990, and Manchester City will challenge for glory, with the feeling that it will go down.
"It's a very good reason to be out of the country when these two fight for the title," Rooney, who plays for the DC United side of the MLS, joked with talkSPORT.

While acknowledging that City and Liverpool are the two best teams in the country, the 33-year-old clearly has a preference over who wants to see the crowned champions.
"I hope Man City crosses the line before Liverpool," he told the Drivetime program.
"I couldn't bear to see them win, it would be a nightmare for any Evertonian.
"I remember that they won the Champions League in 2005 and are still talking about it now, so it will take another 10 or 15 years!"
Liverpool currently leads the City by two points, with current champions Pep Guardiola having one game less.
They host Tottenham at Anfield, while City heads to Fulham.
