Rio Ferdinand has hit out at David Moyes for trying to impose a vision on United, despite the Scotsman, who was also lambasted for adopting "embarrassing" tactics, himself not being too clear about the plan.

Ferdinand returned to Old Trafford on Sunday after leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer, having brought a 10-year career at United to an end in disappointing fashion as the club endured an absolute nightmare of a season under the former Everton manager, who was criticised by Ferdinand for creating a "bad vibe".

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

At the beginning of last season, the average tenure of a manager in the Premier League was 2 years and 2 months.
