Liverpool back on perch after Ferguson-era at Man United, says Moore

After missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City by just one point last season, Liverpool lifted the European Cup for the sixth time in June and now lead the table by five points from City, with United a distant 10 behind.

Moore was interviewed by former Reds striker Michael Robinson at the World Football Summit in Madrid and stated that the club were "back on our perch" following their Champions League success last term.

The club's last league title came in 2013 along with the retirement of Ferguson, with the club since failing to qualify for the Champions League on four occasions in the last six seasons.

"What the Fenway Sports Group have done at Liverpool over the past nine years is nothing short of miraculous", Moore added.

Moore also praised the Reds' owners, highlighting that - unlike the Glazer family with United - Fenway Sports Group have not taken money out of the club.

But Moore's comments have been taken to mean something else, with rival supporters hitting back at claiming Liverpool will not be back until they are league champions again.

Beer fan Carson King's children's charity fundraiser hits $2 million
The Register reported that happened before it published its story, and said its reporter didn't alert Busch to the old comments. However, the beer company still plans to donate more than $350,000 to the University of Iowa's Stead Children's Hospital.

Sir Alex Ferguson famously said that he will do everything to, "knock Liverpool right off their f****** perch" when the Red Devils unveiled the Scotsman as their manager in 1986. "Not at all", the German emphatically declared.

"What I heard is how it often is in life, without the context".

"I'm not angry about him or whatever". I like Peter. He said that and for me it is nothing because I don't even know the word perch.

"When you're winning it's easy to accept as a player not in the team and think "I'm going to play tonight and give it everything, and try to grasp my opportunity, but I can understand why he would pick the team that beat Chelsea at the weekend and I don't get back in this weekend". They win you more games".

Klopp's side are looking to clinch a 16th successive win, which would be just two shy of City's all-time top-flight record of 18 straight between August and December 2017.
