Ferdinand: Liverpool have been phenomenal and you have to admire them

Recommended Posts

 

Rio Ferdinand says that Liverpool’s body of work over the past two seasons is worthy of the highest level of respect.

The Reds currently stand head and shoulders above the pack in the title race, a season after pushing Man City all the way to the finish line and claiming their sixth Champions League trophy.

The former Leeds, Man United and England central defender knows a thing or two about winning trophies, and says this Liverpool team deserves all the praise it is getting.

The Mirror reported Ferdinand as saying:

“You have to respect it, I think Liverpool have done a tremendous job.

“In the last two years the amount of points they have accumulated has been phenomenal.

“You're not lucky to win the league, I know that from experience.

 

"You haven't got to be lucky you've got to be good enough to win a league and Liverpool are more than good enough."

While Liverpool have added the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup to their growing tally this season, Ferdinand senses the Reds are far from satisfied and are men on a mission.

“I think that is the scary part for everyone else is that Liverpool, this isn't about today, they're going to be in this for the long haul.

“They look like a team that is being built for the long-term."

Ferdinand was not finished in his wholesome praise, saying that the running of the club has been first class where everyone has been on the same page.

“I think others team, other owners, can take a lead off of what Liverpool have done. 

"They've invested in their manager, they've invested in his ideas. He's been allowed to implement them over time.

“He (Klopp) didn't have success immediately, but you're seeing it bears fruit four or five years on now from the beginnings of that.

“He was given time and the resources and now the trophies are coming."

This is the key part, and I hope the Glazers & Woodward are on the same page, because their manager needs time.

From the man that brought us

 

"Listen, Man United might not thank me but get the contract out, put it on the table. Let him sign it. Let him write whatever numbers he wants to put on there, given what he's done since he's come in. Ole's at the wheel, man. He's doing it. He's doing his thing. Man United are BACK."

 

 

Gawd bless him.

Klopp earned each year. This wasn't 4 years of shite then boom the finished product. We improved every year in the league and in Europe. How thick are these football pundits. By all means give Ole 4 years that would be great, in reality as soon as Pochettino is allowed to he will be at United.

He says it like Liverpool should not be admired. He lives not far from where I do and I have seen him drive. No wonder he wanted Ole at the wheel, I think he meant as his personal driver. 

 

You should have been more specific, you fucking whopper.

Klopp reached two finals in his first season. He started strong and has continued to get stronger.

Yeah, that gets forgotten a bit. He overachieved with those two finals as we'd no right to be competing at that level with the players he had. Unsurprisingly, we lost to City and Sevilla did a number on us.

Yep - Klopp did achieve immediately. Did he win the league immediately? Well no, he took over a side in 10th that had the air knocked out of them the year before. But 2 quick finals out of nothing (never forget how ruinous Rodgers was in Europe with practically the same squad), then Kiev, then Madrid .. and the rest is history

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
