Rio Ferdinand names two Man Utd players to face ‘big fight’ under Rangnick


Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has warned Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw that they face a “big fight” under new interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

United defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday in Rangnick’s first match.

Wan-Bissaka was left on the bench against his former club, while Shaw has not played since November 20 due to a recurring concussion problem.

Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles have impressed in Wan-Bissaka and Shaw’s absence and Ferdinand believes the two defenders now have “one hell of a job” to get back into Rangnick’s side.

“I’ve got to be honest, Wan-Bissaka has got a hell of a job getting back in this team. The same for Luke Shaw.

“They’ve both got one hell of a job. One thing this manager likes is full-backs who can actually play and get on the ball.

“As well as doing the other stuff like pressing, he wants output with the ball. That’s the weakest part of Wan-Bissaka’s game, there’s going to be a big fight for him to get back into this team,” Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel.
