Rio Ferdinand slams Erik ten Hag for ‘unfair’ treatment of Man Utd star

Rio Ferdinand has slammed Manchester Unitedmanager Erik ten Hag for his treatment of midfielder Casemiro and has urged the Dutchman not to play him in defence.

Casemiro started Sunday’s 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal at centre-back alongside Jonny Evans with the Red Devils in the middle of a defensive injury crisis.

Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Viktor Lindelof and Tyrell Malacia all missed the game due to injury.

But Ferdinand is a firm believer that Casemiro is not suited to the position at all and would rather see Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Sofyan Amrabat take his place.

Come on, move him out of there and get back to the position he knows. Play Aaron Wan-Bissaka there.

‘Then you could have Amrabat at right-back. That’s the most natural thing for me. Wan-Bissaka at centre-back and Amrabat at right-back. He was happy to play him at left-back for a few games.

‘We looked like an uncoached team. At the creative end of the pitch, we were lacking massively. Decision-making and quality was not there.’
