Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has slammed the club over their decision to allow some of their highest paid players to run down their contracts.
At the moment, Manchester United are looking forward to announcing Erik ten Hag as the club’s latest permanent boss at the Theatre of Dreams.
With Rangnick in charge on an interim basis, the future of many Manchester United stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo is in doubt.
Pogba is out of contract in the summer, but is yet to decide his future and the French midfielder has started getting offers from England and abroad.
And Ferdinand slammed Manchester United’s way of doing business as ‘absolutely criminal’, wondering how a player United signed for a then world-record transfer fee of £89m in 2016 could now leave for nothing.
Reminded it is risky to field players who ‘don’t care’ because they won’t be at the club next season, Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel: “That’s because business has been done poorly I think at the club.
“I don’t think we should be allowing players to get down to this stage of their contracts, I don’t think it should happen.
“If someone like Marcus, like Pogba, you want to keep these players if they’re playing well, if you have the desire to keep them, get it done and dusted.
“Economically, to let someone leave, you’ve spent £80m-£90m, come in and leave plus wages, leave on a free transfer is absolutely criminal.
“It’s like we’ve pulled our pants down twice. Unbelievable.”
