Speaking on his official YouTube podcast, Rio Ferdinand said: “It has got to the stage where you can’t even put up a fight as a Manchester United fan. We are getting mocked every week.
“We have gone down to Brighton to the seaside for a day out. We got pumped and sent back home. There is no fight, there is no character and it seems there is no desire. People have downed tools it seems.
“We are getting smashed 4–0 at Brighton. Listen, they are a decent team, but Man United shouldn’t be getting beat like that. This is a terrible situation and I really wonder what it is like in that changing room.
“Is there anyone standing up? Are there any characters that are picking people up or is everyone in there thinking that it has gone now? We have gone and that is it.”
