Watch: Ferdinand criticises Pogba & Mourinho; blasts Man Utd situation


Rio Ferdinand took aim at Jose Mourinho, Paul Pogba and Manchester United as the Red Devils’ troublesome start to the season continued at West Ham.

Mourinho and Pogba’s relationship continues to be the subject of plenty of scrutiny after the midfielder was stripped of the vice-captaincy by the manager.

France international Pogba continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford, while Mourinho’s future is also in doubt as United’s campaign continues to mirror his final seasons in both his spells as Chelsea boss.

Speaking before United’s clash at West Ham, former Red Devils defender Ferdinand criticised Pogba for publicly speaking out about Mourinho’s tactics – he implored United to “attack, attack, attack” earlier in the week – but refused to lay all the blame on the player.

United went on to be beaten 3-1 by the Hammers, and their performance failed to lift the mood of BT Sport pundits Ferdinand and Paul Scholes, who both blasted the players’ attitudes in the defeat.
