Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand predicts that Liverpool look like dominating the Premier League for years to come which is a “scary” prospect for their rivals.
Liverpool have a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League this season with second-placed Manchester City struggling to keep up the pace.
And Ferdinand fully believes that Liverpool have everything in place to continue dominating the league for years to come.
“You have to respect it, I think Liverpool have done a tremendous job,” Ferdinand said.
“In the last two years the amount of points they have accumulated has been phenomenal.
“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. I think others team, other owners, can take a lead off of what Liverpool have done.
“They’ve invested in their manager [Klopp], they’ve invested in his ideas. He’s been allowed to implement them over time.
“He didn’t have success immediately, but you’re seeing it bear 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.”
