Rio Ferdinand, the former Manchester United defender, has criticized manager Erik ten Hag for what he perceives as ‘unfair’ treatment of midfielder Casemiro. Ferdinand has also advised against deploying the Brazilian in defense.

In Man United’s recent 1-0 loss to Arsenal, Casemiro was fielded at center-back alongside Jonny Evans. This decision came amidst a shortage of defenders due to injuries to players like Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, and Luke Shaw.

However, Ferdinand argues that Casemiro is ill-suited for the center-back role and suggests alternatives like Sofyan Amrabat. He expressed his views on his YouTube channel, questioning the fairness of placing someone inexperienced in that position and highlighted the team’s lack of cohesion and creativity in the match.
