The former Manchester United and English central defender Rio Ferdinand believes Liverpool have fallen behind The Red Devils in an interview with Goal, Ferdinand said:
“In the league we’ve got what we wanted, which was an improvement.
“I think Man United at the end of last season [2019-20] finished 30-odd points behind Liverpool.
“Liverpool are now behind us and they’ll have their excuses and reasons why but the cold facts are that we have gained that much ground on them that we’ve gone past them this season.
“That shows vast improvement and we’re second in the league.
“By no means are we the finished article but I think at the beginning of the season if you’d said you’d finish second in the league from where we were I think they’d have snapped your hand off.”
