EPL: It’s unfair – Ferdinand blasts Ten Hag over treatment of Man Utd star

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has hit out at manager Erik ten Hag for his ‘unfair’ treatment of midfielder, Casemiro.

Ferdinand also urged the Dutchman not to play the Brazilian in defence.

Casemiro started Man United’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at centre-back alongside Jonny Evans.

Defenders such as Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw all missed the game due to injury.

But Ferdinand believes Casemiro is not suited to the centre-back position at all and would rather see Sofyan Amrabat take his place.

“Why can’t Sofyan Amrabat play there? Or Scott McTominay? I just don’t think it’s fair,” Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel.

“If you see a few mistakes from someone who is playing there, who has never played there before, and you see the mistakes early, you should go, ‘You know what, I’m not going to do this to you’ – I don’t care how experienced he is.

“We looked like an uncoached team. At the creative end of the pitch, we were lacking massively. Decision-making and quality was not there.”
