Liverpool legend Hansen: Man Utd fullbacks are NOT good enough

Liverpool legend Alan Hansen says Manchester United’s fullbacks aren't good enough.

Reflecting on United’s win at Anfield, Hansen wrote in the Telegraph: "Although he scored a wonderful goal, I’m not convinced Rafael da Silva is the long-term solution at right back. Patrice Evra has been a great left back, but he too may be coming towards the end.

"The entire United defence is not what it was, suffering from injuries to those younger players such as Chris Smalling and Phil Jones who I’m sure Ferguson intended to usher in to eventually replace Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic. Ferguson has an admirable ability to be able to sustain his club’s position at the top while overcoming such problems."
