Video: Rio Ferdinand Says Managers Usually Get Sacked After Performances Like Manchester United’s v West Ham

Rio Ferdinand insists managers usually get sacked after putting in performances like the one Manchester United produced in the 3-1 defeat to West Ham this afternoon.

The former Old Trafford defender was part of BT Sport’s coverage of the game at the London Stadium between the Premier League sides.

United lost to Derby in the Carabao Cup in midweek so would have been hoping to bounce back from that with a victory straight away.

But that didn’t materialise in London, with Jose Mourinho’s side losing 3-1 to Manuel Pellegrini’s Hammers.

It started badly when Felipe Anderson gave West Ham the lead early on, with Andriy Yarmolenko scoring shortly after to make it 2-0.

And despite Marcus Rashford climbing off the bench to score and give United some hope, West Ham seized control of the game with Marko Arnautovic’s goal.

Ferdinand obviously wasn’t impressed with the first half performance and spoke at the break about how performances and results like today’s normally lead to managers being sacked:

It’s been a very tough start to the season for United and this week suggests that things are getting no better under Mourinho.

Does he have anything to worry about though?
