Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has launched an attack on Juventus forward Paolo Dybala after the club started the new Premier League campaign on a winning note.

The former Manchester United defender spoke about Dybala in one of his latest interviews as monitored by the Daily Star.

After he watched Manchester United demolish Chelsea in their Premier League opener, Too Ferdinand called out Paolo Dybala as he said that the Juventus attacker didn’t have the right minerals to play for the Premier League club.

According to him, Paolo Dybala would rather sit down on the Juventus bench because of Champions League football instead of joining Manchester United where he will play regular football.

Paolo Dybala came close to joining Manchester United in a swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku but that transfer fell through mainly due to the high financial request from the Argentine international and his agent.

The 25-year-old Juventus forward had requested for over £350,000 on a weekly basis.

Without Dybala, Manchester United didn’t have much problems in their opening game of the season after they dispatched Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford in the league.

Marcus Rashford scored two goals for the Red Devils in addition to further goals from Anthony Martial and substitute Daniel James.
