EPL: Rio Ferdinand lists ‘only 3 successful Man United signings’ in 10 years

Rio Ferdinand, a former Manchester United defender, has named the ‘only three signings’ of the club who have performed well at Old Trafford over the last decade.

The former England international included Cristiano Ronaldo in the short list that also has Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Burno Fernandes.

One major issue for Manchester United since the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson has been that of recruitment.

And Ferdinand, who spent many years at Old Trafford, says only three signings have performed well for the club in the last decade.

“When you look at the recruitment, I think there’s only three players that I can remember coming in and then going, ‘Okay, they’ve played at a level that you would have expected,” he said on The Sports Agents podcast.

“Bruno [Fernandes], Cristiano [Ronaldo] and Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]. The only three players I thought that you go, ‘Actually I saw consistently what I expected to see from them..

“Everyone else just fell well short. For whatever reason it is, they just haven’t hit a standard you expect them to come in for. There’s no value in them in what you expect. So they have to get to the bottom of that.”
