Rio Ferdinand reveals six players Manchester United should not have signed

Rio Ferdinand has slammed the Manchester United recruitment team following the signing of six former players after the 0-2 defeat against Burnley.

United went down 0-2 courtesy of goals from Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez to suffer their first home loss against Burnley in 58 years.

Fans of United let their frustrations known as they voiced their discontent towards the Glazers and Ed Woodward, leaving the game with 10 minutes to go.

Speaking as a pundit on BT Sport, Ferdinand named six players United should not have signed, "The recruitment, and you can look at the recruitment over seven years this has been on a downward spiral.

"You look at some of the players that have come in, (Marcos) Rojo, (Radamel) Falcao, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Morgan) Schneiderlin, (Matteo) Darmian, (Memphis) Depay. Were these players ever really United players.

"For different reasons, either mentality, ability, style of play, were they ever really Manchester United players? And that's what I was a lot of the time getting baffled with, who's buying these players?

"Is it a manager coming in, 'I want these players for now?', or is it the club saying 'no, hold on. we're going to buy for now but also future proof the club as well.' And I don't think that was coming into consideration."
