Rio Ferdinand explains Mason Mount’s poor start for Manchester United

Mason Mount joined Manchester United over the summer from Chelsea.

With Man United desperate for more quality in midfield, many fans hoped Mount would kick on as soon as he got to Old Trafford.

His two Premier League outings this seen have not exactly been a huge positive for Mount, however.

But Rio Ferdinand has urged people not to judge Mount after two games and believes Erik ten Hag should shoulder the blame for his displays:

“You can’t judge a man after two games, you can’t, because there’d be players who became legends who wouldn’t have been legends if they’d been judged after two games and told to get out,” the former United defender said on his Vibe with FIVE YouTube show.

“I’m not here giving loads and loads of excuses to Mason, but that’s a fact. Look at the Chelsea team in recent years, all the players coming in, it’s hard to perform in that team because it’s so all over the place. The team at the moment isn’t playing well enough for individuals.

“The team isn’t playing well enough yet, so that comes under the manager, 100%. He’s got to get the team playing right. We have to see where he [Mason] fits in. I don’t know where he was brought in to play yet.”
