Rio Ferdinand makes admission about Liverpool FC winning the title


It's a great reason to be out the country when those two are going head-to-head for the title.

Speaking in an interview with the Daily Mirror, Ferdinand said: "There's fans I didn't even know supported Liverpool that have come back out of the wood work after 20 years of being silent that are starting to speak before they've won anything". I couldn't bear to see them win it, it would be a nightmare for any Evertonian.

Ferdinand knows a thing or two about winning the Premier League, after having lifted the trophy six times during his decorated spell at Manchester United.

They have also advanced to the quarterfinal stage of this year's UEFA Champions League competition and will take on Tottenham Hotspur across two legs in the round.

With only two assists in the Premier League this season, Mane will be eager to contribute a little more for others in the dying embers of the season, but if he can continue his own sensational recent scoring record then he has to finally lauded by football fans for his contributions to a tilt at a first Premier League title for the Reds.

With seven games remaining they sit one point ahead of Manchester City at the top, although Pep Guardiola's men have a game in hand.

Pep Guardiola's side came back from two goals down at the Liberty Stadium to win 3-2 but the foul on Raheem Sterling that led to the penalty was debatable while Sergio Aguero scored an 88th-minute victor from an offside position.

Mane overtook compatriot Demba Ba as the Senegalese player with the most Premier League goals in a single season with his 17th of the campaign, equalling Salah's tally for the season too.

"At times he got a lot of stick which was baffling for us as players as to why that was happening". Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva has been one of City's standout players this season.
