Ferdinand: Liverpool Are Poor At Defending

share on:

Rio Ferdinand has launched a scathing remark on Liverpool’s defence, saying Klopp’s men don’t know how to defend, after losing a three-goal lead.

Liverpool were in control of the fixture thirty minutes into the game, going three goals up. However, their poor defence has been under a microscope for the major part of the season.

And a second half collapse from the Reds and poor game from Moreno, saw the Anfield club survive Spain with a single point.

Former England and Manchester United defender Ferdinand was scathing in his assessment, telling BT Sport: “What it does is it brings doubt into the squad and into individuals through personal mistakes – every goal there could have been prevented.

“The penalty for Moreno, the free kick for Moreno, the header for [Ragnar] Klavan, he could have headed that out in a different direction.

“This is a crucial time now, the couple of days towards the weekend are the time for the management to really galvanise and lift this squad up to try and take some positives.

“They are better on the front foot, but the best teams can mix and match, and at the moment this Liverpool team don’t know how to defend.

“They are good playing the way they did in the first half, but then you have to sit back and defend, soak up the pressure, and they have not been able to do that.”
