Ferdinand explains how transfer activities have condemned United for Champions League glory



Man United have made some decent signings and they have been enjoying the moment especially in the camp ahead of the new season.

The Red Devils have secured the signature of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane ahead of the season which makes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team stronger but there have been arguments as whether they need to reinforce not.

Pundits have claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to add two more signings, especially a striker to be able to compete for a title.

However, the club legend has further condemned the Red Devils team ahead of the Champions League, insisting that the transfer activities of other clubs might have played a role.

Probably he had earlier tipped the Red Devils and Man City for a Champions League glory in the past Rio Ferdinand said it will not longer be possible with PSG now acquiring Lionel Messi.

The French capital was on a standstill as PSG unveiled Lionel Messi after he was unable to agree on a new deal with Barcelona. His exit was an emotional one when he finally bid farewell to his childhood club.

The French Ligue 1 side now have Sergio Ramos, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe which Rio Ferdinand admits cannot be overlooked.

“We expect 30, 40-plus goals from Messi this season, and we’ll probably get that. The business end, like the latter stages of the Champions League, it’ll be interesting to see when they come up against a Man City, how they do,” added Cole.

“A big thing for me is the dynamics of the changing room now; Ramos, a certified winner, Messi demands and commands respect from every single player that’s on the pitch,” said the United legend. “Neymar, at times has looked a bit disinterested, a bit loose with the ball… with those guys there now, I don’t think they’ll be able to do that.”


Legend ignores Man Utd, names six teams that can win champions league



Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
