Rio Ferdinand wants Man United flops to learn from Arsenal man

Rio Ferdinand has used Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka as an example of a player that knows how to play on the wing.

The Euro 2020 finalist has been developing well at Arsenal and he is one of the finest attackers around.

He is leading the club towards an unlikely title challenge and they are also making progress in Europe.

United has top players who cost them millions more than Saka, an academy graduate from Hale End.

Yet these players do not deliver as well as he does. Ferdinand believes the likes of Jadon Sancho and Antony can learn from the Arsenal man.

He said via his FIVE YouTube channel:

‘The best teams, the winners, get teams one-versus-one, they wait for that moment in the game. They might only get two or three moments in a game where they stand that full-back up one-versus-one.

‘Saka does it as well as anyone at the moment in the league. They get the full-back one-versus-one and they say, “right, I’m going to ghost you.”

‘At the moment, our wide players aren’t doing that.’
