Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has blasted the club in recent weeks for a lack of control over the players, suggesting the current crop believes they are untouchable.
Speaking on his Vibe with Five YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: “There needs to be fear, man.
“There needs to be ‘Oof if I step out of line, if I go to a nightclub on a wrong day I’m gonna get butchered’ – not only by one of the senior players but also by one of the coaches, because they have got their ear to the ground and people will tell them.
“That’s how it needs to be run – you go out in town at the wrong time, you need to be checked.”
