“Other than foul him?,” Ferdinand told talkSPORT.
“Just check this stat out that tells you how good this guy is. Eight seasons continuous, he has scored 50+ goals. There aren’t people doing that in the Sunday leagues.
“There are strikers that would struggle to do that in Sunday football. He’s doing that at the top level.
“That just tells you what you’re dealing with and what you’re up against as a Liverpool player.”
