Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has named the club to win the 2022-23 Premier League title.
Manchester City were just crowned the kings of the English topflight on Sunday, being a fourth league title in five years.
And Ferdinand believes that Pep Guardiola’s side will retain their title for the third year running next season.
Manchester City came from 2-0 down in six thrilling minutes to beat Aston Villa 3-2 on Sunday to clinch their title in dramatic circumstances, with Liverpool finishing just a single point behind in second place.
Despite other clubs strengthening their teams and changing their managers as they start early preparation for the next season, Ferdinand still feels Manchester City are the team to beat.
Asked for an early prediction on who will win the title next season, Ferdinand said on his Vibe with FIVE YouTube show: “I’m going to go for City. I think they’ll get the three in a row; they’re looking for. I think that will happen.
“But I think what Klopp’s done has been nothing short of remarkable, to come in and change that club around. Where they were is almost like where Man United are at now.
“So if Ten Hag can come in and do like what he [Klopp] did, we’ll be looking at him as a Messiah. So I think it’s only right we do that with Klopp.”
