The former Manchester United footballer has bad news for the Red Devils’ supporters, who hope their team can finish at the top.
English defender Rio Ferdinand played for Manchester United from 2002 to 2014.
And he knows the English Premier League very well
Which is why on the opening weekend of the 2019-2020 campaign, he has given his predictions on which teams will finish at the top four.
“I think Man Utd will be a better team this year than they were last year,” Ferdinand told Give Me Sport.
“Man City, Liverpool – but by a bigger gap than last season – Spurs, Man United.”
“It hurts man, it hurts,” the 40-year-old added.
“I’ve got to speak about Liverpool and Man City winning things and being better than Man United at the moment.”
“I’ve come into this punditry game at the wrong time because it hurts my soul having to talk like this,” he commented.
“But as a pundit you’ve got to be honest, you’ve got to say it as you see it and those two teams are by far the better teams in the league at the moment.”
