[Tweets] Manchester United legend lashes out at the players after Champions League failure

Rio Ferdinand

Club legend Rio Ferdinand had a right old go at Manchester United and the players after the 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in the Champions League. We came into the second leg poised to qualify for the quarterfinals of the competition, thanks to a 0-0 draw in the first leg but it was the away side that did all the damage in the second leg.

Wissam Ben Yedder scored a brace late in the game and a Romelu Lukaku goal was not enough to save our blushes in the Champions League.

Ferdinand, who had also taken part in some glorious Champions League games, tore into the side as he shared his views on Twitter.

Rio also had a pop at the players for being too slow in the attack and even criticised the team’s setup.

There were high hopes for a good Champions League run after making it out of the group stage but we were not up to the task and the loss to Sevilla will certainly be seen as one of Mourinho’s biggest failures at the club.

We can only win the FA Cup now and with the Premier League gone out of reach, this season can be seen as a bit of a regression compared to the last campaign. Hopefully, this will be a lesson for Mourinho and the team and we can perform better in the competition next season.
