Liverpool fans praise punditry duties of Manchester United legend Ferdinand

It is very rare for those associated with Liverpool and Manchester United to give praise to one another, but this week there was an exception.

A handful of Liverpool supporters have hailed Rio Ferdinand for his punditry skills with BT Sport.

The former United defender, who spent 12 years playing at Old Trafford, has been in the studio for this week’s Champions League games, one of which was Liverpool’s quarter-final second leg against Manchester City.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was one of the standout players for Jurgen Klopp in the 3-0 victory at Anfield, and he maintained his form for the deciding fixture at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Despite coming under waves of pressure from Pep Guardiola’s men, the 19-year-old managed to hold his own and contribute to the defensive effort, as well as taking the ball forward.

After the Reds secured a 2-1 victory and 5-1 aggregate triumph over City, Ferdinand and his fellow pundits Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard hailed Alexander-Arnold’s performance.

The ex-United defender praised the youngster’s character for being able to put in an impressive display following errors in recent games against the Red Devils and Crystal Palace.

Liverpool fans gave their reactions to the comments on Twitter.
