Champions League: Rio Ferdinand blames one Liverpool player for 4-1 defeat to Napoli


Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has accused Trent Alexander-Arnold of “lacking desire” as Liverpool lost 4-1 to Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Serie A took a three-goal lead into the break and although Jurgen Klopp’s men improved after the break, the game was already lost.

Ferdinand said on BT Sport: “What you can’t accept as a manager or as a player is a lack of effort and desire. When people don’t run or don’t have the desire to get back.

“Gomez makes the mistake but you’ve got to get back and help your team-mates and Trent didn’t do that.

“Liverpool got teased, they got embarrassed, they got shown up. This result has been coming too. They were lacklustre and lacked grit, determination and desire.”

Liverpool have also struggled in the Premier League this season, winning just two of their first six league games to sit seventh on the log.
