Rio Ferdinand and Jamie Carragher “clash” over Harry Kane after Paul Pogba comparison



Rio Ferdinand has addressed how the media has treated Harry Kane after failing to return to Tottenham for pre-season.

He suggests Manchester United’s Paul Pogba would’ve been portrayed differently if he was in Kane’s shoes after past media treatment but former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher disagreed.

While Kane failed to return to Hotspur Way on Monday morning to undergo COVID-19 testing and routine blood work, Paul Pogba is expected to start his pre-season preparation back at the Aon Training Complex with minimum fuss.

Tweeting on Monday afternoon, Ferdinand suggested the media would treat Pogba differently.

He tweeted: “Let [Pogba] not turn up for [United] training and see how the English media and fans go mad!

“Helicopters and police forces out searching his location immediately.”

Despite the adverse reaction he believes Pogba would receive, Ferdinand also made sure to back Kane’s decision to go on strike.

“And I’m not saying that [Kane] and his tactics to leave are wrong (if we are to believe what’s being said),” Ferdinand added.

“Harry wants trophies, and he isn’t getting any younger.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher chimed in on the debate by quote tweeting and disagreeing with Ferdinand’s second post.

He tweeted: “I disagree. It is wrong not to turn up for training. We all know he wants to go and can totally understand why.

“But Harry should not ruin his name or relationship with the supporters who idolise him just to get the move. Spurs will always be HIS club.”

Howbeit, the future of Paul Pogba is yet to be settled as he is yet to agree on a new contract with the club. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to still work with the Former Juventus midfielder.

Should Man United fail to convince Paul Pogba, they face losing him on a free transfer next summer window .

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.
