Rio Ferdinand believes Manchester United are in urgent need of players with creativity.

Although they have shown some moments of brilliance, Manchester United’s season have mostly been incompetent so far this season after being unable to show consistency.

Manchester United were unable to score in the last two of their games while losing one and drawing the other.

Former defender Rio Ferdinand has suggested that Man United need a player who can connect the midfield to the attack and unlock the opponent’s defense efficiently.

“They need a player who is going to come in and unlock things when it’s tight like this. When teams are putting in a good system in front of them with two blocks there to be broken down,” he told as per Express.

“That’s when you need the quality. That’s when you need someone in the middle of the park who can put a ball over a full-back’s head from 40 yards and get a winger in one vs one. Or get them in on goal from that area.

“At the moment in that team, I don’t see someone who is capable or willing to do that and that’s why the Paul Pogba situation is so frustrating for me as a Manchester United fan.”
