9 months agoMan Utd legend Ferdinand defends Ashley over lack of Newcastle transfer spending

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd legend Ferdinand defends Ashley over lack of Newcastle transfer spendingby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has defended Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley over the club’s lack of signings.The BT Sports pundit – who courted controversy by defending the owner last year – gave his verdict on Rafa Benitez’s frustrations and Ashley’s approach.Speaking on the matter, Ferdinand said: “I understand Rafa’s frustrations because as a manager you want the ability to go out and spend money, but they’re not in that position.“At the same time I understand Mike Ashley. Why is he going to spend more and more money – millions and millions of pounds – when he’s actually looking to sell the club? He’s got them to a point now where they’re back in the Premier League and they’re consolidating to a certain extent.“He’s not going to go spend his own money. You wouldn’t go spend your own money now knowing you were trying to sell something unless you knew you were going to get that back.“It’s not easy to sell a football club. He’s got a price and he’s going to wait to get it. He’s spent money at that football club, he’s just not going to spend it at this time. “All these fans, they do dream, and they dream big and I understand that. What are Newcastle’s aims? They can’t be aiming at being a Man Utd or a Man City. They’ve got to aim to be a Bournemouth. They’ve only just started spending. I’m not saying everything they’re doing is correct. What I’m saying is, I think Mike Ashley, you can’t hammer him and say that he should be spending when he wants to sell the club. You wouldn’t spend on your house when you want to sell it.” last_img read more

United lack leaders – Keane

first_imgFormer Manchester United captain Roy Keane says there are no leaders in the current squad and believes that Jose Mourinho has no trust in his players.United have had a poor start to the season, leaving Mourinho and key players under pressure and intense scrutiny.The Red Devils are currently 16 points behind Liverpool ahead of their clash on Sunday and Keane believes the players should take responsibility for their season so far.“In my time at United, when you talk about trophies, you need, obviously, very good players. But I also felt we had really good characters, really good people. People you want to be in the trenches with,” Keane told Sky Sports.“I still can’t figure this United team out. The key, as well, to be a top player, is to do it week in, week out. I see United every few weeks and think, ‘yeah they’re looking not bad’. Then they look disinterested, which is no good for any of the big clubs.“I think they’ve certainly lost their way and I look at the lack of characters, the lack of leaders in the team and you come unstuck, especially in the big games.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“When you’re a manager or working on the sidelines you want to be able to trust most of your players. I don’t think Mourinho has too much trust in a lot of United players.“He made a point against Arsenal last week when they drew and the standard of the game was really poor, he said in his interview after the game his big worry was every time the ball went in the box he felt like they were going to concede.“If you’re the manager sitting on the sidelines watching and you felt you were going to concede every time the ball went in your box, you’re in trouble.“So he definitely doesn’t trust his back four. People say he’s spent money on it, which he has done, but it doesn’t mean to say [he trusts them]. They’ve made mistakes. They’ve got to go and purchase four defenders.“But at some stage, the players have to take responsibility for it. I know people say Mourinho has to get the fellas on side, but we’re talking about a lot of international players here and if you’re on that pitch and you’re not looking after the ball or you’re sloppy in possession that does come down to the player. At some stage, your own pride has got to kick in, as a professional footballer.”last_img read more
