"If Liverpool achieve the quadruple" - Rio Ferdinand on Jurgen Klopp's team

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes that the current Liverpool team will be remembered as "immortal" if they manage to win the quadruple.

The Reds secured the League Cup back in February. Jurgen Klopp's side defeated Chelsea on penalties at Wembley to secure the trophy.

Liverpool could potentially win more silverware this season. The Reds are still in contention for the Premier League title, Champions League and FA Cup.

Ferdinand has claimed that if Liverpool win the quadruple, they will go above any English team.

As quoted by Anfield Watch on Twitter, the 43-year-old told BT Sport the following: "If Liverpool achieve the quadruple then they are immortal, they are above anyone that has played the game in this country.

"This is the best Liverpool team I’ve ever seen. They’re relentless with and without the ball. It’s the way they press teams, the energy, effort, application, you marvel at it.

"Whether they can achieve it remains to be seen. But they’re ticking boxes along the way at the moment.

“They have got to make sure that they fend off any type of complacency, they can’t allow complacency to creep in anywhere.

"(Jordan) Henderson and (Andy) Robertson are two of the lieutenants I think, along with (Virgil) Van Dijk and maybe Trent (Alexander-Arnold) as well. They will control the culture against complacency."

Anfield Watch Verdict

It would be brilliant to see Liverpool win the quadruple. Winning trophies is a difficult task. So, to win four major honours in one season would be nothing short of brilliant.

But, a lot does have to go right for the Reds if they are to win the quadruple. The reality is, Manchester City do possess a one-point lead over Liverpool in the Premier League.

As we write, the title is very much in City's hands.
