Rio Ferdinand has bemoaned a lack of leadership in the Manchester United squad.
Questions have been raised about Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side following their slow start to the 2020/21 season.

In the Premier League, they are down in tenth place and have suffered three defeats at Old Trafford already, including a 6-1 drubbing by Tottenham.
Man United legend Ferdinand called into question the leadership at the club.
He told BT Sport: “It’s not just about Ole on the sidelines or Mick Phelan or Michael Carrick on the sidelines, sometimes you need a player.
“Before half-time, Bruno (Fernandes), who you don’t mind giving the ball away because he’s a creative spark, but he gave the ball away very cheaply probably four times before half-time.
“They are not leaders. Being brutal, I don’t see anybody who is going to ruffle feathers.”

“I’m sitting there thinking ‘who’s going to be on to him?’ I’d have been screaming.”
Fellow BT Sport pundit Gary Lineker said: “You look at them and you think Bruno Fernandes is a leader and Harry Magure was probably a leader.”
Ferdinand responded: “I don’t think they are.
Lineker added: “Rashford is leading things off the pitch.”

Ferdinand said: “But he’s not leading it on the pitch. They are not leaders. If you are being brutal, I don’t think any of them have showed any signs, maybe Bruno, new player coming in and taking the responsibility in interviews and on the pitch he demands balls.
“I don’t see anybody who is going to ruffle feathers or pull someone aside and say ‘listen, you’ve given away possession cheaply the last three times, sort yourself out’.
“Probably not as nice as that, a bit more harshly.
“Having no fans in the stadium is disgusting and we hate it but it has opened my eyes to see there aren’t many leaders playing football at the moment and Man United are suffering because of that.”
