Rio Ferdinand sends a message to Manchester United chiefs

Former Manchester United man Rio Ferdinand had some sharp words to send to the Old Trafford chiefs after their heavy loss to Barcelona.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were comfortably beaten in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-finals with the aggregate score ending in 4-0.

The Norwegian won’t be pleased with his side’s defeat over the two legs but more so with how they didn’t even score.

United had chances to convert over the course of the 180 minutes but simply didn’t which frustrated fans as well as Ferdinand.

Solskjaer’s fairytale start has taken a real hit over the past few weeks and it’s safe to say the hard work starts now.

Speaking about the Red Devils’ board, Rio said on BT Sport: “The level of recruitment over the last few years at this club has not been up to standard.”

It would be wrong to say the Englishman’s former club haven’t spent considerable sums of money over the past few seasons but that’s not really where the concern lies.

Rather, the issue is why the business Manchester United have conducted has been so poor.

Those in charge at Old Trafford have often overspent and undersold whilst doing so with no real plan in mind which is why fans have been calling for a director of football for quite some time now.
