The 45-year-old, who is a former Spurs defender, claims that Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal are the top four clubs in England.
“Liverpool simply don't have a right to be in the Champions League every year,” Cundy wrote in IBTimes UK. “They’re not dining off the top table any more. When was the last time they signed a world-class foreign player?…
“English football's big four is now clear: Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal. Liverpool have to have an amazing year to get past them, and play out of their skin, like they did last season.”
The words of Cundy, who also played for Chelsea and Ipswich Town, will rattle the Liverpool fans, but can one argue against them?
United are England’s biggest club and will remain so even if they do not finish in the top four. The Red Devils have a worldwide following and financial strength that simply cannot be competed against by Liverpool.
Liverpool remain a big club and a traditional powerful, but failure to win the Premier League and lack of success in recent years mean that they are now pretty an also-ran.
The Merseyside outfit have been in a rebuilding process for years, and it seems that after last season’s success they have gone back to square one.
Like Liverpool, Tottenham have also been trying to break into the top four for years. Spurs do have the money, but they lack the stability that their fierce North London rivals Arsenal have.
