Man Utd hero Ferdinand: Wan-Bissaka must do better

Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand says Aaron Wan-Bissaka was at fault for Joshua King's Bournemouth winner on Saturday.

Cherries striker King drifted off Victor Lindelof before chesting Adam Smith's clip into the box. He then brilliantly flicked the ball over Wan-Bissaka before smashing the ball past David de Gea.

A watching Ferdinand said: "He has got to wait and be patient. You have got to be patient.

“In that area, you have almost got to slow the situation down in your own mind. You haven't got to rush into anything.

“The forward has got his back to goal. What move is he going to make? Once he makes a move, you have to react and try to shut down that shot.

“What he did was, he went to have a nibble around one side, that made Josh King's mind up, he then rolled him, held him off, and put it in with a wonderful finish in the end."
