Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has lamented over the state of affairs at the club this season.

Rio Ferdinand talked about his former club during the launch of South London 4 South London on Friday.

According to him, Manchester United have fallen from their usual high standards and this could be highlighted by the over-reliance on summer signing Daniel James.

Rio Ferdinand said that the team is too dependent on a young player like Daniel James and that shows how far the club has fallen from grace.

The ex-Manchester United centre back was highly critical of his former club.

Rio Ferdinand was a Manchester United player for 11 years until the summer of 2013 when he left the club.

He has been very vocal about the struggles of Manchester United in the Premier League this season.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a former teammate of Rio Ferdinand and he’s in trouble after the poor start recorded by his team in the Premier League this term.

The Red Devils have not won any game for almost a month in the Premier League and that has seen them slide down to 12th on the league table after a return of nine points from the eight games played this term.
