Rio Ferdinand names the key attribute that has impressed him about Liverpool FC
Rio Ferdinand praises Liverpool FC for their unselfish style of play under Jurgen Klopp this season
Rio Ferdinand has praised Liverpool FC for their “unselfish” style of play under Jurgen Klopp this season.
The Reds have been in brilliant attacking form this season and have beaten the likes of Spartak Moscow 7-0 in front of their home fans at Anfield.
Much of Liverpool FC’s attacking threat comes from Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho, who have all been linking up to devastating effect for the Reds this season.
The quartet have been combining in style to help Klopp’s side climb the Premier League table in recent weeks.
Ferdinand has of course been impressed by their attacking prowess, but the former Manchester United defender also singled out their unselfishness as a key factor behind their success this season.
Speaking to BT Sport last week, Ferdinand said: “It’s the unselfishness stands out of these front four.
“They’re all happy for each other to score. Sometimes when you get partnerships, threesomes and quartets, someone wants to be the top [player].
“Here, they’re all happy to help each other.”
Liverpool are now waiting to discover who they will face in the last 16 of the Champions League when the draw is made in Nyon on Monday,
The Reds will return to Premier League action at Anfield on Wednesday night when they take on West Bromwich Albion in front of their home fans.
The Merseyside outfit finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season under Klopp.
