Liverpool have a “small-club mentality,” according to Man Utd legend Rio Ferdinand, who takes a brutal swipe at Carragher and Souness in a tweet.
RIO FERDINAND slammed Liverpool for having a “small-club mentality” and took a scathing swipe at Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness.
Only six days after thrashing United 7-0 at Anfield, Liverpool fell to Bournemouth by a score of 1-0.
Ferdinand said on FIVE after the game, “That is a small club mentality. To me, that screams “teenybopper club.”
Ex-Liverpool players Carragher and Souness were criticized by Ferdinand for their joyous reaction to their team’s shocking loss.
He continued, “And then their team goes and does that on the weekend after seeing how Souness and Carragher were celebrating and how they were trying to antagonize the guys [Roy Keane and Gary Neville].
“They should be ashamed of themselves.”
After suffering a setback at the weekend, Liverpool is now six points behind Newcastle in the race for the top four.
On BT Sport, Manager Jurgen Klopp mused, “What can I say? Truth be told, we were never seriously in the game.
We dominated the first half, but our poor timing cost us against a stout opposition.
They conducted the counterattacks they desired. The areas where we were able to play were, in my opinion, crystal clear and spacious.

We didn’t use it frequently enough, and we didn’t like the challenge of facing a deep, compact side, so the rest of the time was taken up with covering other spaces.
It’s obvious that we won’t be able to get through with all the balls, but it seems as if we didn’t, and that things didn’t pan out.
Not helpful in the counter-attack, obviously, but little things that add up to a big deficit.
I thought we started pretty well in the second half, but then we got the penalty and we missed it, and then we were in a real rush and didn’t create enough really, and that was pretty much it. They did the same stuff, but it was successful enough because we didn’t defend it well.
