(Video) Rio Ferdinand gives verdict on what needs to change at Manchester United

Manchester United have gone five seasons without a trophy.

Rio Ferdinand was asked about the ongoing trophy drought on Wednesday night, while covering the Champions League for BT Sport.

The former definitely doesn’t necessarily believe that addressing one situation, like the vacant manager position, is enough to take United to the promised land.

Ferdinand says the club needs to look across the board and improve in every area.

Ferdinand talks about the need an elite manager but says he will need the right people working around him. All eyes are on John Murtough, Darren Fletcher and, of course, Richard Arnold.

Funnily enough, I spoke about United’s trophy drought on Sky Sports News yesterday morning, and I stressed a stronger line by calling for the Glazers to sell up.

“Manchester United need new owners…” I can’t stress how important that is because the Glazers will never change.

  1. rio was one of the biggest advocates for ole and never really criticised ole properly even when it was clear the guy was clueless.

    he also has stephen howson on his five show – howson being a big supporter of wally and showing off his football knowledge by predicting liverpool would come 5th this season. the liverpool that walloped united 5-0 and has strung 9 premier league wins together – and very predictably are challenging for everything this season with their squad being back to full fitness – not to mention klopp, the best manager in the world. 5th. that shows all you need to know about rio’s understanding of the modern game and uniteds problems -by those who he deems to have worthy football knowledge.

    you can’t have howson on your show and pretend that you know about football. ex players are not necessarily knowledgable about the running of football clubs.

    sorry to sound harsh but i went off you guys and drop in every now and then, you guys are just as clueless as before.
