“United Needs A Messi Or Ronaldo”
Manchester United will need a “superstar” in the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo mould if they are to win the Champions League, says Rio Ferdinand.
The former Red Devils defender told BT Sport : “Power and speed has been brought into this Manchester United team but you need more than that to win the Champions League – you need a superstar in your team to be the go-to guy when things are tight.
“If you look at the Real Madrid team that have won it in recent seasons they’ve had a Cristiano Ronaldo and lately Isco, or Barcelona had Lionel Messi and Neymar.
“You need a star player and Man United have got players that could become that, but we need to find out who that will be and if they can reach that level.”
