Rio Ferdinand makes shocking revelation on coming to Man Utd as a defensive coach

Manchester United legend recently revealed his intention to become a defensive coach at Old Trafford.

United have struggled at the back throughout the 2021-22 season, keeping just four clean sheets in the Premier League and conceding 26 goals – the worst total in the top eight and more than double the number league leaders Manchester City have shipped.

Summer signing Raphael Varane has started just six games in the league due to injury with club captain Harry Maguire struggling to find his form.

United kept two clean sheets in their first two games under Ralf Rangnick but that familiar fragility returned against Newcastle United and Burnley this week.

Ferdinand held the United’s backline from 2002 to 2014 and formed one of the Premier League’s best ever centre-half pairings alongside Nemanja Vidic.

when asked if would consider coming back to the club to help the club’s current crop on the training pitch, he suggested he would jump at the chance.

‘Of course! I probably would,’ Ferdinand told Vibe with Five.

‘We’ll have to see what the deal looks like!

‘But when United come calling, it’s like it is as a player, when United come calling it’s definitely a conversation you sit down and take seriously.’

United remain undefeated under interim boss Rangnick having picked up three wins and two draws in his five games in charge.

They host Wolves in their first game of 2022 on Monday night.
