Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hit out at Manchester United’s lack of decisiveness over the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer was sacked after Manchester United’s 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday.

While he agrees with the decision to sack Solskjaer, Ferdinand has hit out at the timing of the sack, as well as United’s plan to wait until the end of the season to name the next permanent boss.

“I said at the beginning of the season he’ll be judged this season, the spirit came back, the expectation levels were bubbling again and I think the club are justified in sacking him. Because of the recent results and I don’t think Ole will dispute that,” Ferdinand told Vibe With FIVE.

“But the club haven’t been decisive enough, they let it linger on to a point now where we’re now sitting here with an interim, before an interim, before the real manager.

“What is that? And you had two weeks during the international break to sort things out and the narrative would be very different.

“At least get the house in order. We look like a dishwasher going mad at the moment on a Sunday afternoon after a mad roast.”
