Rio Ferdinand, a Manchester United legend, slammed the team following their poor performance against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of sixteen on Wednesday.
Anthony Elanga came off the bench late in the game to equalize for the Red Devils, who had looked completely disorganized in the first half.
The victory gives the Red Devils a greater chance in the second leg, which takes place three weeks later.
“Look, before the game, Manchester United would have taken that result,” Rio Ferdinand stated on BT Sport.
“But they struck gold tonight. They were awful in their play, especially in the first half.
“However, when discussing football at this level, you frequently question, ‘Can you weather the storm and stay in the game?’
“Considering how terrible United played, David de Gea didn’t have much to do.” “You expected a better performance, but they got a result,” he explained.
