It has been revealed that Manchester United great Rio Ferdinand believes the club has no chance of achieving success this season.
The Red Devils spent a fortune on new players this past summer, including Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Anthony Martial and Matteo Darmian, but former defender Ferdinand sees little to change in game style to the team that finished fourth under Louis van Gaal last term.
“If I was a betting man I wouldn’t put money on United winning the Premier League and certainly not the Champions League,” said Ferdinand.
“Right now, I don’t see a huge improvement from last season.
“They are very far behind Manchester City and they were a huge amount of points behind Chelsea last year and they are there or thereabouts with Arsenal.
“Man United fans are having to reeducate themselves on what they’re going to see. You’re not going to see what you saw for the last 25 years. It will be a completely different type of football, not football I enjoy watching as much and probably most Man United fans are like that.”
