EPL: Rio Ferdinand blasts one Man Utd player as Red Devils lose 2-0 to Burnley

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, criticised Anthony Martial during their 2-0 defeat to Burnley on Wednesday night.

Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez scored in each half, as Sean Dyche’s men claimed a famous victory at Old Trafford.

Martial started the Premier League clash and missed two superb chances in the first half, which Ferdinand believes would have been tucked away by some of his former United team-mates.

Speaking at half-time, Manchester United legend Ferdinand told BT Sport: “I’ll criticise Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] when I think he deserves it.

“He’s put a team out tonight, they’ve lacked ideas but they could have had three goals. They created three big chances in the first half.

“They haven’t been clinical enough. Anthony Martial has to do better.

“If that ball goes into Ruud van Nistelrooy, Michael Owen or Wayne Rooney it’s a goal. [Mason] Greenwood scores that.

“I would bring him [Greenwood] on, he knows how to score goals and that’s the issue for Manchester United right now.”
