Rio Ferdinand has criticized Manchester United’s “shameful” handling of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s exit.
After weeks of pressure, the Norwegian were finally knocked out on Sunday, 24 hours after a 4-1 loss at Watford.
Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers are the key names to replace him, with Michael Carrick already installed as interim manager.
However, the veteran former United defender has criticized the Old Trafford hierarchy for its failure to plan ahead.
to speak on vibe with five, he added: “All of a sudden, the game happens and we lose, and the club makes the decision. It’s all reactive. Nothing is ready. Even the management situation, of course you see it first.” Are?
“You identify and know a certain candidate. It’s almost like, ‘Oh, that’s the result, we’re going to sack Ole, now we’re looking for someone to come and take over. We will put an interim before the interim, and then we will look for a manager.’
“‘It’s really embarrassing. You’re trying to defend the club, and you want to be positive, but I can’t.
“Surely there’s a candidate who should have been identified weeks ago because you could see what was coming?

“You see the club is not performing, you have a two-week international break. This is the right time to start the round and identify the next candidate.
“You can’t keep changing the conductor if you don’t do anything with the orchestra.”
Ferdinand said: “Man United have always been a team that you associate with being the best in class, the elite in all aspects of the club – be it the business angle, the business angle, even on the pitch.
“At the moment, it’s all but all of those areas. That’s what worries me. Every area feels like it’s just flagging off.
“Yes, the commercial sector is doing well, but Man United is a global brand so you expect it. In terms of decision making and being decisive, it’s all but.”
Mauricio Pochettino has overtaken Brendan Rodgers and Zinedine Zidane in the race to become Manchester United’s next permanent manager.
This is according to bookmakers Betfair, who have reduced the price of Pochettino from 6/1 to 21/10 after a 24-hour frenzy in the betting market.
