Rio Ferdinand questions Solskjaer’s plans for the club

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has shared thoughts on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans at the club.

The former defender has fired that he cannot explicitly understand what the Norwegian is doing and actually taking the club.

“Not super clearly yet,” the 41-year-old said on BT Sport when asked whether he understands where the club are heading under the Norwegian.

“I still think it’s a work in progress, the problem has been the inconsistency. Recently they’ve beaten Spurs and City and you think they are on the right path, we can see it, they are moving forward.

“Then they go and put in a performance like they did against Arsenal and it was disheartening seeing that game.

“But I think with the young players and the players he’s got out, the inconsistency is not understandable but you can understand where it’s coming from.”

Indeed, this season the club has been largely inconsistent under the Norwegian’s watch.

The club is currently fifth in the Premier League standings, 5 points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, and 27 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool who have a game in hand.
