Manchester United were defeated by Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday as Josh King scored the only goal of the game at the stroke of half-time.

The Red Devils were impressive in the early minutes of the game but a slight error from young summer signing Aaron Wan-Bisaka gave King the chance to put the ball past helpless David De Gea.

The former Crystal Palace fullback has been in awesome form for the Red Devils since his switch to the Old Trafford and he will be disappointed that his mistake played a big role in team’s first defeat in four games in all competitions.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand refused to criticize the young England international after the game.

“This isn’t the time to sit here and criticise him – ‘Is he this? Is he that?’ – that’s just one instance in the game where he got it wrong. I could get a 34-year-old and he could make the same mistake sometimes,” he said.

According to him, the Wan-Bisaka will get better as time goes by, though, the advised the player to be more patience whenever he’s up against strikers in 1-vs-1 situations.

He equally charged him to work on his positioning and his timing because they were all missing in his display against the Cherries.

Rio Ferdinand said: “But there are elements he’ll need to add to his game, like patience, timing and positioning at times, but that’s all to come and that’s why they bought him. Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] bought him knowing all this.”
