Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has criticised Jose Mourinho’s ‘moaning’ regarding the progress of the club.
The Portuguese has overseen a difficult start to the league season with the club 16 points behind leaders Liverpool, with Mourinho often vocal in his criticism of his players and the club’s transfer policy.
Ferdinand, who won six league titles during his time at Old Trafford, believes Mourinho should take more responsibility for the club’s failings.
“Mourinho came in, won three trophies in the first season and stabilised the place. But they haven’t moved on since then.’’ Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“He’s moaning about certain players in his team and the players not being as good as others.
“But he’s had a few transfer windows to make that right now.
“And unfortunately, some of the players he’s brought in are on the bench.
“Pogba, [Romelu] Lukaku, Sanchez isn’t fit.
“Fred isn’t featuring, [Victor] Lindelof and [Eric] Bailly ready made starters in his team.
“These are all signings he’s made who are not playing in the first team.
“So to be moaning that he hasn’t got the right players, he has had good windows to make that right.”
