Rio Ferdinand criticized Manchester United for an ’embarrassing’ first-half performance against Liverpool as United fans called for the resignation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a humiliating defeat to Liverpool.
United were utterly reprehensible in the first 45 minutes, conceding four home goals in the first half for the first time in 70 years and the first in Premier League history when Liverpool rioted.
Naby Keita gave the visitors a 1-0 lead after five minutes, before Diogo Jota added a second eight minutes later and Mohamed Salah scored twice seven minutes before half time.
Rio Ferdinand described the performance as a case of ‘men against boys’
Liverpool’s dominance was so great that Ferdinand described the match as men playing against boys.
“We will always be a threat because of the individuals we have… but we are so easy to play through it’s unreal,” he tweeted in the first half.
Many fans on social media expressed his feelings and called for Solksjaer’s resignation and described Sunday’s performance as a ‘disgrace’
Some pointed out that United conceded more goals in the first 45 minutes against Liverpool than Chelsea have in nine Premier League games so far and called for Antonio Conte, Erik Ten Hag or Zinedine Zidane to replace Solskjaer.
