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.

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.

“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.
