Rio Ferdinand admits he fears period of dominance from ‘phenomenal’ Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp's side currently hold a massive 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League and are just six wins away from being crowned champions after a stunning campaign

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has admitted he cannot help but admire Liverpool's current success and believes it will continue for a long time.
The Reds are on the verge of clinching their first league title in 30 years after finishing second with 97 points last season to narrowly miss out to Manchester City.
Klopp's side currently hold a massive 22-point lead at the top of the table and are just six wins away from being crowned champions.
After winning six league titles during his time at Old Trafford, Ferdinand knows what it takes to win the Premier League and said he has nothing but respect for what Liverpool have done.
Speaking at BT's launch of its new, five-year 4-3-3 partnership with the English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh FAs, Ferdinand said: "You have to respect it, I think Liverpool have done a tremendous job.
In the last two years the amount of points they have accumulated has been phenomenal.
They've done that, you have to admire it and respect it.
You're not lucky to win the league, I know that from experience. You haven't got to be lucky you've got to be good enough to win a league and Liverpool are more than good enough."
If Liverpool are able to clinch the title, it would cap off a hugely successful 12 months that has seen the Champions League and Club World Cup trophies head to Anfield.
And Ferdinand, who has been part of dominant United sides under Sir Alex Ferguson, believes that the Reds are just getting started.
The 41-year-old added: "I think that is the scary part for everyone else is that Liverpool, this isn't about today, they're going to be in this for the long haul.
"They look like a team that is being built for the long-term.
I think others team, other owners, can take a lead off of what Liverpool have done. They've invested in their manager, they've invested in his ideas. He's been allowed to implement them over time.
"He didn't have success immediately, but you're seeing it bears fruit four or five years on now from the beginnings of that.
"He was given time and the resources and now the trophies are coming."
