Manchester City and Liverpool are considered by many people to be the strong candidates for the English Premier League champions at the end of the season, having witnessed their performances earlier this season. In fact, Manchester United’s legend, Rio Ferdinand also saying both teams as strong candidates to win in the European Champions League, why?
As is known, Manchester City is considered as one of the candidates for the Premier League this season, because of the composition of the players and the depth of the squad they currently have, with the addition of one brand-new ammunition, Riyad Mahrez brought in last summer. The squad is handled by the cold-handed manager, Pep Guardiola managed to win the English Premier League title last season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool itself managed to attract four top ammunition this summer, including Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Brazil National Team, Alisson Becker. The arrival of the four new players is considered to perfect Jurgen Klopp’s direction squad which last season reached the final round.
Naturally, if the two teams are considered as favorites in the English Premier League this season, but a little strange when he heard Ferdinand’s comments about the two teams are also favorites in the European Champions League.
“I think Liverpool and Manchester City are strong candidates for the Champions League this season. It’s quite painful for me to say they [City and Liverpool] are potential champions, but that is the fact.”
“I think they are both really candidates to become champions, where they are the representatives of England who are most likely to become winners. However, whether they can do it or not, we’ll see later.” said Ferdinand as quoted by Goal International.
