Rio Ferdinand slams defender after United’s 2-2 draw with Spurs

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has said that Tottenham’s backman, Eric Dier did not in any way make Marcus Rashford respect him during their 2-2 draw in the Premier League on Thursday night.

Ferdinand noted that United forward, Rashford had it very easy with the Tottenham defender.

Manchester United were already 2-0 up at half-time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Jadon Sancho’s seventh minute strike and Rashford’s 29th goal of the season put the Red Devils in front.

But Spurs returned to the second half stronger with Pedro Porro and Son Heung-min on the score sheet.

And defender Dier was criticised for Manchester United’s early goals for not squaring up to Rashford but allowing the England forward his way.

“At no point did Eric Dier make Rashford think, ‘I’ve got something to think about here, I have got to do something unique or different to get by you,’” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“It was very easy. Rashford showed him no respect and was ruthless.”
