World News – AU – Edwin van der Sar’s text to Rio Ferdinand after Man Utd conceded Leicester


. .

Manchester United will move to two points ahead of Liverpool if they beat the Wolves on Tuesday – but they could have been even closer if they had taken care of the defensive « details »

Rio Ferdinand and Edwin van der Sar relived their game days when Manchester United suffered one of their defensive rounds against Leicester on Saturday.

United can move to two points ahead of Premier League leaders Liverpool when they welcome the Wolves on Tuesday night.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team knows that they could have been within reach of the top spot if they had secured all three points against the Füchse at the weekend.

United led through Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes twice at King Power Stadium but had to settle for a 2-2 draw after being held back on both occasions.

It was the first time the Red Devils have lost points on the road in the Premier League this season – they had to come from behind to win all six of their previous away games.

And Ferdinand says that Solskjaer’s side must start paying attention to « details » if they are to pose a serious challenge to the title.

He announced he had received a text from former United goalkeeper Van der Sar after Harvey Barnes scored Leicester’s first leveler when the two Old Trafford legends munched on the team’s defensive shortcomings.

« Edwin van der Sar texted me during the game when the goal was scored and McTominay refused to close it and Bailly was behind him, » said ex-defender Ferdinand on his Five YouTube channel.

« And it took me back to when we were playing, and I always said to Edwin, ‘If you see me going to someone who is one on one or on the edge of the box, I’ll try and stand in a certain place and wherever I stand, you face it, you react where I stand. ‘.

« So if I was going to say Fernando Torres, on the edge of the box, I know he’s right footed, I’ll make sure he can’t kick it back between my legs. « .

« So he can go down the right side, keep pushing the right side down and get a shot, but I’ll allow you to shoot near the post, that’s fine – but not back through my legs, I will block that. « 

Ferdinand and Van der Sar played together at United for six years, winning four Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League.

And former England center-back Ferdinand says the relationships players develop with one another can make a huge difference in terms of how they win games.

« I would say to Edwin, » Hopefully if this goes through my legs, save it, but if you don’t, it’s me. I take full responsibility. « . And these are the conversations we had.

« And that’s exactly what the players have to do. You need to build relationships and speak of the playing field before moving on. « When this situation arises, I will do it this way. « .

« This way, no stone remains intact. It’s in the details. Sometimes you win three points with detail.

« You go home with a dot or no dots for not focusing or figuring out the finer details and making sure you were both on the same page.

« It’s about working in twos, twos, threes, or sometimes quartets, working together in small units on the field and gaining a good understanding of each other. « 

With the January transfer window opening soon, many are calling for United to step up their defensive options.

But Ferdinand says his former team doesn’t necessarily have to spend money if both players and coaching staff do the work on the training ground.

« Sometimes you can’t just go checkbook after checkbook and buy player for player, » he said.

« I’m not saying the coaching staff don’t do that at Man United because I know they are, but sometimes there are little nuances, little things that you think about or that you might forget or about you don’t think the time. « 

Ferdinand said it was not just up to the coaches, but asked the players to « take ownership » of their responsibility to defend.

« All of these players can be on the training ground by the way they play these days, have seen it, they are all well trained as teams, they all have a game plan, they all work towards what the manager does want – that’s fine, that’s great. But sometimes you need a little more, ”he said.

« There is a fine detail in the games that gets you over the finish line and you just have to be very diligent as a team.

« Sometimes it’s not the manager or the coaches. It’s up to you as a player to ask questions and pull people aside and say, ‘We’re going to do this because it is. « I’ll make it easier for you and I’ll stand here and you will respond to me. ‘.
