Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand has labelled this season’s Liverpool team the Reds’ ‘best in his time’. In Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg, Liverpool cruised to a 2-0 win against Villarreal and are edging closer to an unheard-of quadruple.

After lifting the Carabao Cup in February, Liverpool are in the FA Cup final, on the brink of another Champions League final and are one Manchester City slip away from clinching the Premier League too. After full-time, Ferdinand hailed Jurgen Klopp’s side as the best the club has produced in his lifetime.

He told BT Sport: “We all thought they’d get chances, and it’s just about being clinical, and they were in the second half. They got the goal, and the tempo changed. They upped the ante; they absolutely suffocated this Villarreal team. This Liverpool team; this is the best Liverpool team I have seen in my time.”
