Rio Ferdinand names his Man Utd starting XI for next match with demand to Erik ten Hag

For Manchester United’s next Premier League match against Brentford on Saturday, Rio Ferdinand has encouraged Erik ten Hag to bench both Scott McTominay and Fred.Information Guide Nigeria

Last Sunday, United’s midfield was led by Fred, 29, and McTominay, 25, who lost to Brighton 2-1 at home in Ten Hag’s first game in command. The eager duo is not considered good enough by many experts to play for a club of United’s calibre.

After losing Nemanja Matic to Roma and Paul Pogba to Juventus, the Red Devils are looking for at least one new central midfielder. It was obvious that United needed to spend in their midfield after a disastrous 2021/22 season even before their separate departures.

United had their lowest point total (58) in 32 years as they finished sixth in the Premier League last season. Additionally, they haven’t received a trophy since their Europa League victory in May 2017. Tellingly, neither Fred nor McTominay took part in that victory.

Ferdinand thinks that Ten Hag should bench the duo for their upcoming match and start Lisandro Martinez in midfield instead. Although the Argentine is a center-back by trade, his height raises questions. At 5’9, he is the shortest centre-back in the Premier League.

On Martinez, Ferdinand continued: “He reminds me of Gabi Heinze a little bit, but he’s better on the ball. But Harry Kane, Erling Haaland, Darwin Nunez, Chris Wood, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Danny Welbeck… these guys, if I’m them, I go and stand on him [Martinez] when the ball is wide.

“Because of the height difference you just do it and then it’s up to him: can he deal with it?… Gary Neville wasn’t the tallest, but if the ball was coming across and he knows he’s got a big fella coming in behind him to smash him over the top, before the ball is even there: bang! [hit them] Put them off, they can’t head it cleanly.”JAMB Result
