Michael Owen and Peter Crouch agreed with Rio Ferdinand’s claim that Jurgen Klopp’s current Liverpool team was ‘the best’ the ex-Red Devil had ever seen.
The claim followed the Reds’ 2-0 victory over Villarreal to hand the German’s men a solid lead to take to Spain for the return leg in the semi-final of the Champions League.
It was a vintage performance from the former Mainz boss’ side who were ruthless after the half-time break to make up for a lack of a breakthrough in the opening 45 minutes.
