“The was the team was lined-up is just ridiculous”, Ferdinand told BT Sports.
“Maybe Di Francesco didn’t have time to watch Liverpool this season. Roma made no pressure on the ball and their defenders are not quick enough. He put Roma in the hends of Liverpool. We said that before the first half and that’s exactly what happened.”
“It doesn’t happen very frequently to give the manager all the blame for the team’s defeat but this time I think Roma were abandoned by their manager.”
Liverpool sealed a crucial 5-2 win at Anfield Road on Tuesday night and the giallorossi will be in desperate need of a 3-0 win at the Olimpico next week. The Italians have already achieved the same result last month when they eliminated Barcelona from the quarter finals of the competition.”
