Ferdinand: ‘No rest’ for defenders if United hadn’t sold those strikers

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has revealed that he is still disappointed by the sales of Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck.

Manager Luis Van Gaal sold Hernandez to Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 while Welbeck left for Arsenal a year earlier. Despite Ibrahimovic being on top of his form this season, Ferdinand believes United would have been much sharper with those two and Marcus Rashford up front.

“I just look at the team and I think it’s so disappointing.” Rio said. “You could have Chicharito, Danny Welbeck and Rashford. Could you imagine? As a defender, I’m sitting here thinking ‘there’s no rest’.”

Ferdinand aligned with Mourinho’s sentiments on the matter, who was quote saying earlier: “I would’ve never sold Di Maria, Chicharito, Danny Welbeck – never, no chance!”

United have struggle with goals this season, having scored only 46 goals in 30 games, with Ibrahimovic contributing with a lion’s share in this.

The Red Devils are still on track for winning another trophy this year as they are the biggest club left in the prestigious Europa League. Their quest continues on Thursday against Anderlecht.
