Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has advised Liverpool on how to end their long trophy drought.
Ex-England international Ferdinand told BT Sport that Liverpool would find it hard to win trophies unless they play with freedom.
According to him, the Reds’ recent struggles to find the back of the net could be traced to the fact that they are playing with the handbrakes on.
Rio Ferdinand believes that Liverpool players are not playing with freedom like they always do because of the pressure of winning the Premier League title.
Liverpool have drawn two of their last six games in the league and that has seen them lose their lead at the top of the Premier League to champions Manchester City.
The Citizens have a one-point lead over Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table with eight games left to play between now and the rest of the season.
Liverpool have not won the league title since 1990 meaning that they have gone 29 years without a league crown.
The Reds last won a title in 2012 when club legend Kenny Dalglish led them to the Carabao Cup title.
Liverpool can take a step towards a title when they face German champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
