Ferdinand warns United that their defense is not enough to win titles

Manchester United beat RB Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League, however Rio Ferdinand has not hesitated to assure that the central duo, made up of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelöf, does not have enough quality to aspire to the titles.

“Is it good enough? I'd probably say no, if you're trying to win major competitions, '' Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

“Yes, last season they had a good defensive record, but I see moments in the games where they open, sometimes they dominate them physically, especially in terms of pace, especially if their protection is not what you would expect if the game opens. a little, ”added the Englishman.

Ferdinand's criticism comes after having managed to clean up the goal in the last two games. But the performance in the Champions League, with two victories, against PSG and Leipzig, contrasts with that of the Premier. United are 15th after five games with just 7 points.

“If the game opens up and they're in the middle line and they're playing one-on-one or two-on-two, then I fear for my life in that situation. If the team form is right and everything is set up correctly, then they look like a decent couple, ”insisted Ferdinand.
