‘Sadly, he simply isn’t prepared,’ Ferdinand informed Vibe with 5.
‘He simply isn’t prepared.
‘He went to Rangers, couldn’t actually get into the staff and have an effect on their staff, which tells you he’s not close to entering into the Man United staff. Are you aware what I imply?
‘Plus, once more, is he the best participant? He hasn’t acquired that explosive tempo that they’re possibly on the lookout for, he’s extra of a participant with a bit extra guile, who likes to return to the ball and create like that, reasonably than operating onto issues and behind and stuff like that.
‘I simply suppose it’s a bit too early for somebody like him to return in and take that mantle on. Sure, I don’t suppose he’s close to sufficient to the first-team squad.
‘If he’d have gone to Rangers and smashed it at Rangers then he’d have had an opportunity.
‘However as a result of he did nothing, he’s going to be a little bit bit off it and he’s somebody we are going to look to mortgage out, I’d say.’
